FOP Groundbreaking

By  | 

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 13 will soon have a new home in Bowling Green.

Officials broke ground this morning at the new location on Corvette Drive next to the Corvette Museum.

The building is expected to be completed by late August or early September.

President Chris Eaton says it's a facility that will benefit the entire community.

"Our lodge will be available for rental, for meetings, for fundraisers; it will be an opportunity to gather into the Corvette Museum, our neighbor as well.

There are 250 members of Lodge 13. The organization will have its annual police officers memorial on Friday, May 20 at noon at the Bowling Green Police Department flag pole in front of their headquarters.
