Brothers and Sisters, 

2014 has kicked off and has been going great and your FOP has been busy already!  I was proud to report that in 2013, the Owensboro lodge donated $37,911.57 to charity.  So far in the first two months of 2014, the Owensboro Lodge has sponsored the 2014 Polar Plunge as well as several other local charity events.  I am proud to report that our members also took the icy plunge winning the lodge the title of "Largest Law Enforcement Team"! 

There are no signs of slowing down for our lodge either in 2014. We are working in partnership with the Owensboro Fire Department and the Owensboro Professional Fire Fighters Local #870 to host a benefit chicken cook for OFD Battalion Chief David McCrady.  This fundraiser has been met with unbelievable community support.  Thank you to the overwhelming supporters and volunteers we have heard from so far, and we look forward to seeing everyone at this event on 03/15/14 at Precious Blood Catholic Church in Owensboro Ky.   

The Owensboro FOP is also a sponsor in the 2nd Annual Owensboro Police Department Run from the Cops 5K.  More information can be found at

Thank you again to all of our community supporters who have donated time or money to our causes, attended our public events such as our annual police memorial service, and who have supported our members by simply saying "Thank You".  Don't forget to check out our photo album and check us out on our Facebook page (F.O.P. Lodge #16) and Twitter (@KyFOP16_Oboro)  If there is anything I can do or any questions I can answer, please do not hesitate to contact me via the listed email, or by phone.
