Help needed for the Lodge home

From VP Ober:


I will be searching for a brother/sister to assist with replacement of our entry doors at the lodge.  The person I had in mind is too busy to take on this task right now.  Brother McKim will be posting on our website.  If we can’t find a member who might want to work off dues, I will be researching local business’ who can take on the job.  Home Depot will be about $2,000 for two steel entry doors, if it stops there.  If any of you have contact info or input for this project, please feel free to forward me the info.


Brothers  / Sisters with construction talent and/or a willingness to donate the doors, please reach out.

You can email Brother Ober at

December 5 call to action

All Members,

Tuesday, December 5th at 7 PM the Conestoga Township Supervisors will meet to discuss whether or not to have Police Contract Services with Pequea Twp. for continued police coverage through the Southern Regional Police Department.  There has been talk of the township not contracting the services leaving the Conestoga Twp. residents without local police coverage.  This of course would mean a layoff of at least one police officer.  Red Rose Lodge 16, Fraternal Order of Police at its monthly meeting in November discussed this issue in detail and how it would impact our Brothers and Sisters in the Southern Regional Police Department as well as the citizens of Conestoga Township.  The members present suggested our members attend the township meeting at the Conestoga Township Municipal Building on Main St. in Conestoga.  The meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017 at 1900 hours.  Members are encouraged to appear at the meeting to show our support of the township signing the contract to keep police services.  If you are able to attend it would be appreciated.  Thank you for considering this very important request.


Chris Erb,


Red Rose FOP Lodge 16
