Lancaster, VA – In meetings with members of the Lancaster Loyal Order of Moose #2527 in August, the lodge voted to donate funds to purchase a life saving ballistic vest for deputies of the Lancaster Sheriff's Office. It was discussed in the meeting that deputies that transport and transfer prisoners did not have ballistic vests for protection. After some discussions, the lodge voted to donate the funds to purchase a vest. During that same meeting Tim and Karen Ray of TK's Siding and Seamless Gutter, LLC, offered to purchase two other vests to go with the lodge's donation. Tim (board officer) and Karen are both members of the Lancaster Moose Lodge. The donation of three ballistic vests were made to Sheriff Patrick McCranie on August 30, 2016 at the lodge.
