Reinholds VFW Post 6759 Gives Back To The Community
(Shopping News Photo by Donald Reese)

Reinholds VFW Post 6759 has been an avid supporter of Keystone Military Families Stockings for Soldiers and partner with Blue Ridge Commun­ications since 2012.

Completing their 10th year of incredible support through various fundraisers, Reinholds VFW Post 6759 has raised over $11,000 to offset the cost of shipping the much requested and needed gift-filled stockings. This generosity will bring a welcome smile to the men and women serving around the world this holiday season. In addition, boxes of items needed to fill the stockings were collected.

Shown in the photo, from left to right, are volunteers Nancy McQuate, Pat McQuate, Danielle Shumate, Britta Stuart and Cindy Mellinger.

Every year, the Reinholds VFW donates thousands of dollars to local ambulance companies, fire companies, various veteran programs and school programs; as well as many other community-based initi­atives. None of this would be possible without the support of their regular, lifetime, auxiliary and social members. The Rein­holds VFW Post 6759 is very lucky to have such charitable members.

The Reinholds VFW holds events year-round to raise money. In 2022, there are many events scheduled including: Bingo, candy sales, chicken BBQ, crafts shows and more! The next scheduled fundraising event will be a Cash Bingo at the Denver Fire Company, 425 Locust Street, Denver, on Sunday, January 23. Doors open at 1:00 p.m. and Bingo begins at 2:00 p.m.

Overall, the Keystone Military Families Stockings for Soldiers program, in partnership with Blue Ridge, raised over $28,000 in monetary donations and counting (slated to defray the costs of purchasing, shipping and distributing gift-filled stockings to soldiers serving the country around the world). They have also collected 8,000 pounds of stocking stuffer donations (including food, hygiene and other requested items). Over 32,000 personalized messages were received (including close to 12,000 crocheted/knitted prayer squares, over 16,000 cards and over 4,000 colored stockings). Also, over 3,500 handmade ornaments were distributed, including beauti­fully sewn stockings.

“We want to thank our customers and community for their overwhelming show of support for this worthy cause,” said Cindy Mell­inger, Blue Ridge Marketing/Community Relations Coor­dinator and Stockings For Soldiers Central PA Project Coordinator. “This outpour­ing of caring support means so much to our soldiers that cannot be home this Christmas.”

“Pieces From The Past” – Featuring The Terre Hill Historical Society
(Shopping News Photo by Donald Reese)

This week The Shopping News is pleased to welcome the Terre Hill Historical Society to our “Pieces From The Past” series. In this weekly article, Shopping News readers will learn about local items housed in local museums and historical societies.

This week’s feature is a tin can from one of Terre Hills businesses back in the day. It is an old tin containing lard that was sold for cooking and soap making, among other things. The maker was Levi J. Ammon of Terre Hill and the can states it is “pure kettle rendered.” Lard was considered unhealthy years ago, but research has shown it can actually be better than butter.

The Historical Society’s meeting night is held the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Terre Hill Community Center. The club is encouraging anyone who has an interest in Terre Hill and its rich history to come out to any meeting night and join them in this effort to preserve the history for future generations. Also, the society is always looking for anyone who has old artifacts from Terre Hills’ past to add to their collection. If you wish to donate any items, they are always greatly appreciated. If you would like to become part of this group or wish to contribute your time or artifacts, please come on the third Thursday of each month to the community center, or email or call Ron at [email protected] or 717-466-6509. Please also call Ron if you are interested in a tour so an appointment can be scheduled.

Lincoln Fire Company Holds Their Annual Fund Drive
(Shopping News Photo by Donald Reese)

The Lincoln Fire Company of Ephrata is having their annual Fund Drive until the end of the year. The 55 active volunteer firefighters have set a fund drive goal of $80,000. Mailers were sent to all the addresses in the fire district in the middle of September.

Chief Richard Gehman is reporting that as of Wednesday, December 1, only 20% of the residences and businesses have contributed. “It is hoped that a large portion of our citizens will respond during the second half of the campaign,” stated Gehman.

The Chief noted that the Fire Company has responded to over 350 calls this year to date. This will be the first year that they will respond to an average of a call per day. Also, over 3,200 volunteer man-hours have been spent for training, fire prevention and administration.

Gehman stated, “The 2020 Fund Drive enabled us to update our hydraulic rescue tools, an expense of over $100,000. This year, funds are being used for operating and maintenance expenses, as we have seen increased costs with our 1992 engine, due to be replaced in 2 years. Our members need to continually train and know the latest best practices for their own safety and that of the community.”

This year, the Lincoln Fire Officers were in command of the Weaver warehouse fire, the largest in company history. With the assistance of many mutual aid units, they were able to save tens of millions of dollars to surrounding businesses. Having the apparatus and personnel to do that is thanks to the community support.

The Fire Company provides first due response to western Ephrata Borough and Ephrata Township, as well as eastern Clay Township as well as mutual aid throughout northern Lancaster County.

Donations can be sent to the Fire Company address at 38 South Market Street in Ephrata.

Our Story

The Shopping News of Lancaster County was first published on April 14, 1965 as a 24-page half-tab issue. It was mailed to 10,000 homes in the area. Today, The Shopping News publishes a full-tab paper and is delivered to 38,000 homes each week. During the early 1960’s there were no free papers covering Northern Lancaster County. Publisher John Hocking had been thinking about starting a free paper for quite some time. At the time, he was the founder and owner of Hocking Printing Co., Inc., which he began in 1953. The first location of his printing company was at 27 Lincoln Avenue Rear, Ephrata, in a small garage-type building. As the printing business expanded, John moved the business to his residence, at that time located at 119 E. Franklin Street, Ephrata. When that location proved too small, John purchased 24 E. Orange Street, Ephrata. It was at that location in 1965 that The Shopping News was first published. In 1972, John purchased the former East End Planing Mill on East Main Street in Ephrata. The building was renovated and was home to both the printing company and The Shopping News until 1986. On February 6, 1986, a fire completely destroyed the building. Due to the dedicated work of the employees and the help from friends and business associates, only one issue of The Shopping News was missed. In 1987, the company moved back to the rebuilt 615 E. Main St. location in the new building where it is today. The Shopping News has been recognized by a national free paper organization for its dedication to customer service and for printing a superior newspaper. Awards have been won in various categories few of the awards won from the Independent Free Papers of America (IFPA) and Mid-Atlantic Community Papers Association (MACPA) for many years. One of the most popular features of The Shopping News is the section that is produced each March called “Local Businesses, Professionals and Industries ... Meeting The Challenge.” This past year over 150 businesses were featured in the section with articles and photos of their businesses and employees. https://issuu.com/shoppingnews/docs

“Pieces From The Past” – Featuring The Terre Hill Historical Society (Shopping News Photo by Donald Reese) This week The Shopping News is pleased to welcome the Terre Hill Historical Society to our “Pieces From The Past” series. In this weekly article, Shopping News readers will learn about local items housed in local museums and historical societies. This week’s feature is a tin can from one of Terre Hills businesses back in the day. It is an old tin containing lard that was sold for cooking and soap making, among other things.

The club is encouraging anyone who has an interest in Terre Hill and its rich history to come out to any meeting night and join them in this effort to preserve the history for future generations.
