Are you in the mood for some great hockey? How about great hockey that will benefit the children of fallen law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty in Pennsylvania.
This is going to be a great event and to support it area fire companies donated department shirts for the Cops for K.O.P.S. Charity Hockey Game. The game will be held January 18 in the Giant Center.
You can get these great local fire department shirts at the raffle table by the Club Section.
The ceremony starts at 12:30 followed by the puck drop at 1pm. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $10.

The West Hanover Township Fire Company would like to update our community on the repair progress of Engine 36-1. It will be year today that this incident occurred. We are most grateful for the support of our Township Board of Supervisors, Township Manager Mr. Dan Rosario and his staff for their tireless work on working through the repairs of our Engine. We are greatly indebted to so many for their assistance as we have worked through the acquisition of our current Engine 36 which has been the Acting Engine 36-1. Work Continues the fine craftsman from Glick are working on our Engine to make it better then new. We are reminded how lucky we are that our crew members received only minor injuries. We would also like to Thank the Residents of West Hanover Township as with out their generous support none of this would be possible. We are very blessed to have a state of the art fire station and the apparatus that we have to protect the citizens of our Township and the surrounding communities. So many times we read about other Townships that are at odds with their leadership. If we look over the past several years much has been accomplished in our Township with the support of our Board of Supervisors and our dedicated volunteers. A new fire station, new rescue truck, new air packs. ... See MoreSee Less
