SUNDAY Breakfast on March 6 at the Lititz Springs VFW POST 1463 benefit the Jesse Jones Composite Squadron. Breakfast begins Sunday March 6 at 8 a.m. and concludes at 11 a.m. The donation is $10 per person.

Breakfast on March 6 at the Lititz Springs Post 1463 of the VFW will benefit the Jesse Jones Composite Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol which is located at the Lancaster Airport.
Lititz Springs Post 1463 of the VFW holds a monthly breakfast at their post home at 14 N. Spruce Street in Lititz on the first Sunday of each month. For March the proceeds will go directly to the local Civil Air Patrol squadron in support of their Cadet program, Aerospace Education program and Emergency Services program.
The Cadet program for teenagers, aged 12 and above, offers them opportunities to learn leadership skills, character development and physical fitness while learning about military life, engaging in search and rescue activities, and experiencing aerospace as a potential career choice.
The Aerospace Education program engages members in theories of flight, propulsion, and diverse STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) projects made available by the U.S. Air Force.
Emergency Services skills are honed by CAP members in preparation for search and rescue missions including disaster relief and other humanitarian activities.
The Jesse Jones Composite Squadron 304 meets each Monday from 7 until 9 pm at the Venture Jets hangar which is located on the Lancaster Municipal Airport at the corner of Lititz Pike and Millport Road. Breakfast begins Sunday March 6 at 8 am and concludes at 11 am. The donation is $10 per person.
Civil Air Patrol, the longtime all-volunteer U.S. Air Force auxiliary, is the newest member of the Air Force’s Total Force. In this role, CAP operates a fleet of 560 aircraft, performs about 90 percent of continental U.S. inland search and rescue missions as tasked by the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center and is credited by the AFRCC with saving an average of 80 lives annually. CAP’s 61,000 members also perform homeland security, disaster relief and drug interdiction missions at the request of federal, state, and local agencies. In addition, CAP plays a leading role in aerospace/STEM education, and its members serve as mentors to over 26,000 young people participating in CAP’s Cadet Programs.

‘Tails’ of joy (Photo by Missi Fyler Mortimer)
The braided tails were flying last Tuesday night when the Ephrata girls basketball team mobbed teammate Brynn Adams (center) after she hit a game-tying three at the buzzer to send the Lady Mounts playoff game with Penn Manor into overtime. They went on to win the game and advance to the league final where they fell to Lancaster Catholic, concluding an incredible end-of-season run. For the full story and more photos, including coverage of Jasmine Griffin becoming the first player in Ephrata history to reach 1,000 points in her junior year, see this week’s sports section.

As The Review was going to press Tuesday evening, the Ephrata
girls basketball team was about to battle Penn Manor for a trip to
the Lancaster-Lebanon League finals. This, after clinching its third
straight Section Two title last week (top photo). It has been quite
a journey for the Lady Mounts since starting out 1-4 back in December, as they are currently on a four-game winning streak and
have won 10 of their last 11. Celebrating Saturday’s quarterfinal
win over Manheim Central are (left to right) Brynn Adams, Cara
Tiesi and Jasmine Griffin. For more stories and photos on the Lady
Mounts, turn to A2. Missi Mortimer Photo

Chris Quadarella
Ephrata Review’s Male Athlete of the Week.

Cocalico’s senior bowler rolled 10 strikes in game three of Monday’s Section Three match against Lampeter-Strasburg, giving him a match-high 257 and helping the Eagles get to the doorstep of a sixth consecutive Section championship with a 7-0 shutout of the Pioneers. With his scores of 182 and 155 in the first two games, Quadarella finished with a series of 594.

Kiersten Shipton
Ephrata Review’s Female Athlete of the Week.
Cocalico’s junior guard became the all-time leading three-point shooter in Eagle girls program history when she rained in four triples in the team’s 46-38 Section Three win over Solanco last Tuesday, Feb. 1. Kiersten finished with 16 points in
that game then led the Eagles in scoring with 11 points in their game against Lampeter-Strasburg last Saturday.

Look for our 4-page sports section featuring your favorite sports and local high school athletes. Also, don't miss Bruce Morgan's story on Ernie Hartranft a fixture on the Lancaster-Lebanon League sports scene. As a referee for both football and basketball, the Ephrata native worked countless games, traveling to all the L-L schools to signal touchdowns, toss the ball up and maybe call a foul or two.

Check out The Ephrata Review this week 😁 To read: https://ephratareview-pa.newsmemory.com/
Good morning, My wife recently passed away.. She is/ was a USAF Veteran. I am sharing her obituary with all of you. Long story short, shortly after being diagnosed with non-survivable cancer, she founded a 501c3 for her sisters in arms who are battling terminal cancer. The mission is to prepay final expenses for those who don't have final expense coverage. There are certain requirements to qualify. Please help my wife's vision by sharing this information, so that we can reach as many woman Veterans as possible. Should you want to know her story, you are invited to check us out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/teamjennifercahillcharities/ You can also visit us on the web at tjcc.site. The Tribute Page for Jennifer has been published. Help friends and family share memories by sending them this link. https://gb774.app.goo.gl/LJiRW

How many of the nay-sayers complaining about the new 222/322 interchange have ever driven through a diverging diamond? How many have ridden in an ambulance with a loved one injured at the archaic old interchange. How many have buried a friend killed at that very intersection?
Coverage where it counts the most. "Many burglars are opportunists, but they also know what they want to do and how they’re going to do it. Most of them know more about home security than the average home owner. It’s their job after all. If you have poorly placed outdoor security cameras, or a dummy burglar alarm fitted, the experienced thief will know about it." contact www.escosecurity.com for your free evaluation and a chance to win a $100 gift card. *The $100 gift card offer is only valid during the month of May, but the peace of mind that ESCO can offer lasts a lifetime.* Avigilon Lancaster Lancaster Lititz PA Ephrata, Pennsylvania LNP + LancasterOnline PennLive.com Reading Eagle The Ephrata Review
