DC Eager Emergency Services, LLC are experts in all types of property damage that may occur within your home or business, such as Water, Sewer, Lead, Mold and Hoarding. They have also become well known throughout the contractor world for their Clean/Selective Demolition. Darlene Eager, Owner, has been in the business for 19 years. She has put together an amazing team who shares her love of the business as well as her love of helping and caring for people. Do you suspect mold growth in your home or business? Are you worried about the possible impact it may have on the health of your family? There is a lot of misinformation about mold and scare tactics that are used by other companies. DC Eager would love the opportunity to educate you on YOUR situation, as each condition is unique. If you suspect mold is present, there are a few necessary things you must know while waiting for DC Eager to assess your home. First, locate and fix the source of the moisture which has caused the mold to grow and spread. As where there is moisture, there will be mold, the moisture must be removed or the mold will just grow back. Second, there is no magic potion that you spray on mold and it just disappears. Bleach does not kill mold. Bleach will whiten mold staining just as it does with your laundry but the mold itself will still be there. If a mold remediation is done correctly, there is no need for chemicals. And lastly, do not wipe the mold or introduce air movement directly onto the affected area as this can promote the spreading of mold to other areas of the home or business. Hiring DC Eager, who is a certified, reputable, experienced and professional mold remediation company is your best option. You cannot just ignore mold, it won’t just go away, but it can get worse. Everyone at DC Eager is passionate about what they do and want to make sure their customers are educated and their experiences are stress free. If you or anyone you know needs the services of DC Eager Emergency Services, LLC, please feel free to call Darlene at 717-989-5763 for Darlene Eager, Owner a FREE assessment/estimate.

AFP advanced food products llc is one of North America’s leading aseptic private label/co-pack food manufacturers of innovative, shelf-stable cheese sauces, dips, puddings, sauces and soups. As a result of our seasoned employees and thriving workplace environment, we consistently provide the best value and service to our customers.

Making its start in the 1940s, AFP is a pioneer in aseptic manufacturing and has been using aseptic food processing methods since 1951. Aseptic technology uses ultra-high temperatures and a short heating time to preserve freshness and nutrition. The product and the packaging are sterilized separately and then combined and sealed in a sterilized atmosphere. This process extends shelf life and does not require the use of preservatives. At AFP we have been experiencing sustained growth and continual expansion. One of the most notable changes in our industry has been the increased difficulty in staffing. With unemployment so low in Lancaster County, finding employees with the necessary skills is increasingly competitive. Our company provides the perfect setting for qualified job seekers wanting to join us in this far-reaching industry. Due to our expansion, AFP currently has many job opportunities in maintenance, packaging, processing and sanitation positions. We are working with the Chamber of Commerce and the Workforce Development Board on ways to change the perception that manufacturing is a dead-end job. AFP is working towards changing the conversation at schools and with parents about the viability of these skilled jobs. This is a national issue that is being faced by many companies. We are committed to being proactive and coordinating our efforts within the community in order to build a strong economic basis for Lancaster County. With three strategically located facilities—in New Holland, Pennsylvania, Clear Lake, Wisconsin and Visalia, California—our triangulated placement gives us access to convenient distribution channels nationally and internationally. We offer our customers unrivaled logistical advantages regardless of size or industry. AFP is continually striving to improve the way we do things so we can create a better environment and continue our long-lasting expansion. We are committed to fostering proactive and innovative leadership, delivering market-driven solutions and adding value through dedication to our customers’ success. Come join the AFP team and see for yourself what makes us stand apart from the competition. Give us a call at 717-355-8500 and visit our website at www. apfllc.com.

The Shank Door Company is happily celebrating 57 years of service within the community. With a variety of doors available to both residential and commercial clients, Shank Door Company has grown to be the largest garage door installer across the region. The success of this local business began in Harrisonburg, Virginia in the 1950s by Ralph Shank when he started selling and installing garage doors. With hard work, discipline and the heart of a true entrepreneur, Ralph moved to Baltimore for a short time and then moved to Myerstown in 1964. He began selling doors out of his basement and as his reputation for excellent service, superior labor and remarkable products spread throughout the community, the business continued to prosper. The current location of Shank Door at Myerstown was originally a farm belonging to Ralph’s brother, Aaron Shank. Ira Mast, the company’s first associate, was hired in 1971. In 1973, the farm officially became the established site for the business. Ralph decided to sell the business to Ira in 1976. He remained in some capacity following the transition. They also have a team working out of their Lancaster warehouse location. Ira placed high importance on thoroughness and continued growing the company competently and yielding growth. Despite a fire in 1982 when the building burned, Ira persevered and Shank Door rebounded and several new additions were built. The success of Shank Door is due to God-given opportunities, loyal contractors and customers. While styles and times have certainly changed from Ralph’s initial interest in doors, the market for quality, durability and function has not. Employing approximately 70 people, Shank Door maintains the reputation of quality and hard work set forth by Ralph. This commitment has earned them excellent reviews on Google and Angie’s List, as well as countless customer referrals. Overhead, entry and car wash doors, roll up screens and retractable awnings are among the products available for residential or commercial clients. If you are looking for any of these products and need an installation team that is highly skilled, please call Shank Door. Their phone number is 717-738-4499. You may also view their website at www.shankdoor.com for more information. Their hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or by appointment. 24-hour emergency service is available.

The Cocalico Valley Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #3376 (also known as the Ephrata V.F.W.) has been a fixture of the Ephrata landscape since 1935. The Ephrata V.F.W. is also the home of a very popular full service bar and restaurant (“The Canteen”). The Veterans of Foreign Wars organization is the oldest combat veteran institution in the United States. It is comprised of men and women who have served in the military overseas, were honorably discharged and who have earned a combat ribbon(s). Amy MacKenzie, Post 3376 Quartermaster, states that many years ago, V.F.W.’s were known as old, smoky bars for military men only. However, the Ephrata V.F.W. is happy that for more than 12 years the Post and Canteen are 100% tobacco free and are family friendly establishments that serve the entire community. They boast an active core membership made of Veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, and more; both young and old, men and women. Dwayne MacKenzie, Post 3376 Commander, takes pride in ensuring that the Post fulfills the mission of the National V.F.W.: “No One Does More for Veterans.” The Officers and Members take to heart the mantra of the National V.F.W.: “Honoring the dead by serving the living.” The Ephrata V.F.W. focuses on charitable works such as sending care packages to currently deployed troops, assisting local veterans in need through financial or spiritual assistance, or by helping veterans navigate the often-times complicated VA system to obtain all the benefits they, and their families, are entitled to. Most importantly, the V.F.W. provides a place of comradeship for combat veterans and their families, to share experiences and offer support to one another. Both the Quartermaster and the Commander are quick to point out that the V.F.W.’s membership has grown over the past decade and has become more diverse as well. They attribute much of this growth to their community outreach programs, such as the Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen youth scholarship essays, sponsoring the annual Jack Frost Children’s Parade and Children’s Christmas Party, recognizing and awarding outstanding Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, and EMT’s; sponsoring the “Ephrata Honors” Banners; co-hosting the Annual Community Memorial Day Ceremony; and making financial donations to numerous other worthwhile organizations in the community. Canteen Manager Chad Eckroth notes that the Canteen has recently gone through a huge remodeling effort and is consistently known for providing quality food and entertainment for members and visitors alike. They now boast a 12 tap glycol-cooled beer system that feature 6 local microbrews at any given time. Although they are a private club, Dining is Always Open to the Public, and a great way to check out the club before joining. Revenue from the Canteen is used to support the many military and community support programs of the Ephrata VFW; patrons of the Canteen can take pride that their patronage helps their local military and neighbors. The Cocalico Valley Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #3376 is located at 141 South State Street, Ephrata, PA 17522. The organization is always accepting new members, be they VFW, Auxiliary or Social.

REAL Life Community Services is more than just the Declaration House. Although REAL Life Community Services is able to provide affordable housing for 10 families, the Denver Community Health Center and the Willow Creek Discount Grocery through the use of the Declaration House, they also offer many programs outside the Declaration House to help “connect the community to hope.” The faith based non-profit organization works hard to make sure that people feel significant in a world that tries to discount them daily. One of the programs offered is the Lighthouse Youth Center, which is becoming more and more of a community center. Youth in the Cocalico School District can come for fun events, educational resources, mentoring opportunities, and the Momentum Club for youth development. REAL Life Community Services actually began as a youth ministry, working with the schools to meet the needs of at-risk youth. They quickly found that there was a direct correlation between at-risk youth and families in need. Seeing the needs of families living in poverty and the lack of resources available, Rod Redcay started a non-profit group called R.E.A.L. Youth Ministries. In 2016, the name of their organization was changed to REAL Life Community Services so they could focus on the community as a whole. Rod is currently the Executive Director of REAL Life Community Services, the mayor of Denver and the president of the Mayor’s Association of Lancaster County. His wife Sunny, who had been working in youth ministry since 1994, is the administrator at REAL Life. Chris Hibbert, who has worked with organizations like the Community Action Partnership and served within the Cocalico School District for over 25 years, is the Director of Social Work. REAL Life Community Services purchased the warehouse behind the Declaration House and renamed it Warehouse 916. With this expansion, they are able to provide food to more people in the Cocalico School District. Programs such as the Power Packs Project and the Cocalico Food Pantry Client Choice are offered to help people experiencing food insecurity. Through the Transitional Home for Moms, REAL Life is able to help a single mom and her children who are homeless to get back on their feet and thrive. REAL Life is also the Denver location of the Northern Lancaster Hub, a coalition of 20+ non-profit organizations funded by the United Way to help end poverty. REAL Life Community Services is located at the Declaration House, 240 Main Street, Suite B, Denver. Their business hours are Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. They can be reached at 717-336-7797 or you may view their website at www.reallcs.org.

Tone Tailors opened its doors in downtown Lancaster in March of 2015. After establishing themselves as a beacon of light for musicians in the area, in September of 2017 they moved their store to Lititz, Pa. to take advantage of their new location’s proximity to the recently-constructed Rock Lititz Plaza. The new 4,000-square foot space inside of Pod #2 of the humongous plaza is triple the size of the original store, and enabled owners John Paul “JP” Painton and John LeClair to expand their guitar inventory dramatically, along with allowing the pair to stock a gigantic stock of other musical instruments such as drums, keyboards, L-R: Joe Fuscia, John LeClair, James Lipka, John Paul “JP” Painton and amplifiers, accessories and more. Connor Smith. Co-owner Painton likes to state that Tone Tailors’ ability to listen to the constant feedback of their customers, and take that feedback to heart in order to provide the best service possible is what makes them stand apart from the competition. Co-owner LeClair explains that with their spacious shop, enormous inventory, and knowledgeable staff he truly feels the store can live up to it’s alliterative, descriptive name. Now, three and a half years after the move to Lititz, Tone Tailors has established themselves as the premier music shop in all of Lancaster County. They feature equipment from guitar makers like Fender and Martin, and have created a special niche for local musicians by featuring the most expansive line of effects pedals one could imagine. They also carry a huge amount of accessories such as guitar strings, cables, straps, tuners and more. Need work on one of your guitars? Let one of their accomplished repairmen get your guitar or bass working and looking new again.

After a successful tenure in the Lititz, Pa. area, the business has been acquired by new owner Matt Martin, and has been rebranded under the current, well-known name of Your Choice Specialties. Martin would like to let all past and future clients know that even though the business has a new location and a new name, they still provide the same top-notch service sales and repair that they always have.

Martin states that the new location gives much more room to house their sales floor, service area and parts department with over 13,000 square feet of space. Owner Martin has always been passionate about trucks. By Martin’s 18th birthday, he was a seasoned truck driver, hitting the road while keeping his own truck sparkling clean. Martin had heard stories about commercial truck washes destroying the paint of the truck and burning the polished aluminum. Because of this, Martin embarked on starting up his own mobile truck cleaning service using products from Tetra-Chem, which he had previously used on his own rig. Over the years, Martin’s hobby turned into a small business as more truckers bought cleaning products from him. Now, years later, Your Choice Specialties has become the top rated pressure washing and truck washing products dealer in the area. When you are looking for products to help wash your truck or perform a pressure washing project, look no further than Your Choice Specialties.

Did you know that many house fires start as a result of a poorly functioning and unsafe chimney? Carbon monoxide can also leak into your home through damaged and deteriorated liners. Solid Flue Chimney Savers are able to restore your chimney back to safe, working order without a complete teardown of the chimney. They have several relining options to choose from depending on the situation. Solid Flue is a unique chimney lining system ideally suited to reline and restore old, damaged or worn out chimney flues. Solid Flue is a registered and patented trade name with a network of chimney lining professionals. It was featured on the TV show, “This Old House,” many times. Through a unique process, a properly sized rubber bladder is dropped down the chimney and spaced evenly, and then a patented solid flue material is poured around the formers and left overnight to properly cure. Solid Flue is a zero clearance liner meaning heat doesn’t transfer through the liner to combustible materials surrounding the chimney. The liner comes with a lifetime warranty.

In 1971, 22-year-old Ben Brubacher founded Brubacher Excavating with one John Deere backhoe and a pickup truck. He was fueled by initiative, hard work and commitment to provide good value. A few close calls on the farm in the early years of business drove home the value of thinking ahead to what could happen and prioritizing safety. Never much for paperwork and meetings, Ben didn’t write a business plan, financial projections, a vision statement or list core values. That didn’t keep his employees from understanding what was important! They quickly learned to look ahead to see and do the work eagerly, work together to get the job done and to do what’s right even when the customer or inspector isn’t there. As the industry grew in hazard awareness, so did Brubacher’s commitment to health and safety, underscoring the God-given value placed on the lives and livelihoods of the team and their families. This foundation guides Brubacher today: Mission: Shaping the World We Live In Vision: To be Uncommonly Refreshing in Our Approach to People, Projects, and Solutions Values: Safety, Integrity, Initiative and Teamwork Today, the company employs over 265 people and is expanding its workforce to accommodate growth in 2021 and beyond. It performs land clearing, construction survey/GPS, earthmoving, utility installation and paving work for developers, contractors and utility owners throughout southeast Pennsylvania, northern Delaware and Maryland. Brubacher also maintains an operation in Liberty, PA that serves the energy industry. The business is currently co-owned by sons Keith and Myron. Keith serves as President. While very little is known about what the future holds for the next 50 years, the Brubacher family is confident of two things: God will continue to faithfully provide as He has done in the past, and the Brubacher Team, committed to living out these principles, will be equipped to successfully face the opportunity and challenges ahead. It is ONLY by the combination of these two beliefs that Brubacher can celebrate this milestone. They are grateful to every generation of employees who has been stretched and grown by opportunity and adversity. The future promises the same, yet in different ways. On the surface, construction will be ever more reliant on technology, connected data and even artificial intelligence. At the core of Brubacher’s success for the next 50 years is a team who is committed to “shaping the world they live in” by being “uncommonly refreshing in their approach to people, projects, and solutions.” Business Hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. More information can be found on their website, www.brubacher.net or by calling 717-445-4571.

Located at 700 East Lincoln Avenue, Myerstown, and at 1121 Main Street, East Earl, Once Mine Boutique specializes in consigning used clothing and infant accessories. Once Mine Boutique is unique from other consignment stores because not only do they carry many different styles of modest clothing for everyone in the family, they also carry an assortment of new items from local vendors. Because Myerstown lacked consignment shops, Once Mine Now Yours was started in 2011. In 2017, the shop was purchased by brothers James and Jerry Burkholder, along with their wives, Janell and Colleen. They changed the name to Once Mine Boutique. Together, along with their own growing families, they have continued with the dream of making quality, modest, consigned clothing, in a clean, organized atmosphere, a reality. In 2020, the second location was opened with sisters, Alinda Hollinger and Leanna Martin, managing the East Earl store. A successful grand opening happened in January and they have appreciated the warm welcome into the community of East Earl. From dropping off items, to purchasing items, Once Mine Boutique strives to take the best care of our consignors and customers. We enjoy serving you in both locations and value lasting relationships. Once Mine Boutique business hours are Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For more information, including consignor information, find them online at www.oncemineboutique.com and on Instagram and Facebook.

In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Fairmount leadership asked how we can meet our mission of serving the community and demonstrate our core value of compassion. After much prayer, lengthy consultation with our Medical Director and other medical professionals, and weeks of study and preparation, Fairmount took the bold step of creating a special “COVID treatment center.” A first-floor hallway named Dogwood, with its own separate entrance for admissions, was outfitted with negative pressure equipment to move air outside rather than circulating inside to prevent cross-contamination. Dedicated team members, specially trained in caring for persons with infectious diseases, offered to work in this area. Not only was Fairmount ready to serve its own residents who tested positive with COVID, it was equipped to take residents with COVID-19 from hospitals, other retirement homes, and the local community who needed a place to recover. While other nursing homes were turning these residents away, Fairmount was welcoming them. By the end of 2020, the Dogwood COVID Unit had reached the milestone of serving its 100th resident. Since the first resident was admitted into Dogwood in early April 2020, 121 individuals have been served in Dogwood. Thank you to our dedicated team of caregivers who made this venture a success!

According to John Raber, running a small business that is family owned and operated is the only way to go. When Raber’s Tire opened their doors in 2008, John and his son Jarren worked together to do whatever it took to bring customers satisfaction. Their dedication to this principle caused the business to grow in leaps and bounds, bringing John and Jarren to the point where they couldn’t keep up anymore. John decided to hire his nephew, Jeff Mast. With the help of another family member, Raber’s Tire is ready to help and satisfy even more customers, without having to sacrifice their desire to remain family owned and operated. John started his career at the age of 21 in a family owned and operated retail tire shop. The business was owned by John’s brother-in-law. “It’s been a blessing to work with family members,” comments John. For three years, John continued to work with his brother-in-law as a shop foreman. In 1997, John opened his own tire shop in Cambridge, Ohio. Under the clear leading of God, John and his family moved to Ephrata in 2008. Raber’s Tire (L-R): Justin, Sam, Jarren, John, Levi, Lee, Puffer, Ray and Johny opened in the spring of the same year. Upon opening, John wanted to reflect his family’s desire to honor and glorify God in everything they did, including changing tires. This desire hasn’t changed as they still seek to serve Him, as they serve you. They thank and glorify God for prospering His business abundantly. John characterizes the tire business as hard work, but also very satisfying and enjoyable. He always looks forward to the next day at work. “Big and small, we do them all” describes the tire inventory available to customers.

SHOPPING NEWS of Lancaster County

What started as one man’s dream of opening his own print shop has grown to become a companywide commitment of service to the local community. Serving the community was John Hocking’s lifelong goal, and that involvement in the community continues to this day, with a hard-working group of employees now ensuring that those core values John believed in are still central to the company as a whole. What was once a small print shop in a simple garage, Hocking Printing is now housed in a recently renovated facility located in the 600 block of East Main Street in Ephrata. The late John W. Hocking, former publisher of The Shopping News and owner of Hocking Printing John and Janie Hocking in 1990. Co., Inc., graduated from Milton S. Hershey Boys School where he majored in printing. In 1953, after working at The Ephrata Ensign and Lebanon Daily News, he opened a one-man print shop in a garage behind Lincoln Avenue in Ephrata. Mr. Hocking and his wife Janie introduced The Shopping News to Lancaster Countians in 1965. The paper began as a 1/2 tab, 24-page booklet mailed bi-weekly to only 10,000 homes. Both business ventures have grown considerably over the years. The Shopping News is now a full tab newspaper, averaging 40 pages per week and reaching over 38,000 homes in Lancaster County, as well as parts of Lebanon and Berks Counties. The Shopping News is dedicated to publishing local community happenings and events of interest. Hocking Printing is committed to offering its customers quality printing at a reasonable price. Printing services include brochures, newsletters, business cards, letterheads, resumes, invoices and all other custom printing orders. Wedding, special occasion invitations and announcements are also available. Customers are welcome to look through the many samples displayed in the office. Rubber stamps, magnetic signs, photocopy and fax service are also offered. The management team of Julie Hocking, Harold Wenger and Pam Boyer, along with all of the other Shopping News staff continue to work diligently to deliver a quality paper to your doorstep each week! The office is located at 615 East Main Street, Ephrata, and can be reached at 717-738-1151. Office hours are Monday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Tuesday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and Saturday, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
