Announcing “A Stable Future”

The Bethlehem Mounted Patrol Unit, along with the Friends of the Bethlehem Mounted Police, are excited to share important news with all of our friends, fans, and supporters. After careful planning and considerable effort over the past two years, we are finally able to announce that the Friends of the Bethlehem Mounted Police has begun a capital campaign to fund a new stable facility located on E. Langhorne Ave. by the Holy Savior Cemetery.

This campaign, affectionately titled “A Stable Future,” will, with your help, provide the Bethlehem Mounted Patrol Unit’s horses a safe, healthy place to live, train, and work, well into the future. It is also with great gratitude that we announce the generous companies that have stepped forward already to assist in the effort. Our naming sponsor, Quadrant Private Wealth, is joined by Air Products & Chemicals, Straight Arrow Inc. makers of the Original Mane ‘n Tail and Cowboy Magic, Just Born Quality Confections, the R.K. Laros Foundation, the Bethlehem Parking Authority, The Philadelphia Trust, and Altronics Security Systems as sponsors and contributors to the new stable. A special “Thank You” to the Diocese of Allentown for offering to help with 10 acres of land!
