At the Monday evening meeting of White Sulphur Springs City Council, the State Lodge Fraternal Order of Police presented WSS Police Chief John Pauley with a check for $3,900. Of that total, the lodge donated $2,400, an anonymous donor gave $1,000 and the Friends of Coal Ladies Auxiliary donated $500. The donated money was part of a larger flood recovery fundraising and distribution effort initiated by the lodge to help small, West Virginia police departments that suffered in the June flood.
