Shop With A Cop Begins

The local Fraternal Order of Police lodge 105 advises local residents that they have started their Shop With A Cop fundraiser for the 2015 season. Anyone representing the local FOP will call residents for donations. There seems to be a possible scam operating in the area where individuals represent themselves as the FOP. They say they are sending the resident a donation package in the mail. The local FOP will be calling for donations and they will mail the resident a receipt, if requested. This donation is tax deductible. This money is kept in the local area and spent on children from the local community for the Shop With A Cop program. For more information on the program, contact the FOP Lodge 105 secretary/treasurer at 304-646-1908.

AA meetings

are held at St. James Episcopal Church, 218 South Court Street, Lewisburg, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7 p.m. and on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 12 noon.
