The reception begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Mendenhall Inn on Route 52 in Kennett Township. Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, is expected to arrive around 7:45 to address members of the committee, according to committee officials. Republican U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey will also address the crowd beginning at about 7:15 p.m. Toomey has been scheduled for weeks as the keynote speaker for the event.
