(Albany, Ky.) -- On Wednesday, April 29, 2009 Karen Sadler representing Modern Woodman of America purchased Trees and Shrubbery from Wal-Mart in Somerset and Monticello to be planted at Trooper Island. Karen along with store management and associates from the Somerset and Monticello Wal-Marts planted 21 trees, and 35 shrubs in various areas on the island. Many of the trees and shrubs replaced those which had been damaged from storms over the past few years.

Trooper Island was created in 1965 by the Kentucky State Police to help those who may not have otherwise had a chance to attend a summer camp. Located on Dale Hollow Lake near the Clinton-Cumberland County line, Trooper Island is a co-ed camp, with approximately 700 boys and girls ages 10 to 12, selected from across the commonwealth by Troopers attend a week long camp at no charge during the summer months.

In addition to the regular camping schedule Trooper Island has conducted camps for some of Kentucky's special needs youth. Some of these camps have included Children with Congenital Heart Disease (Camp BraveHearts), PKU (Phenylketonuria), Hearing Impairment, Vision Impairment and Hispanic.

Trooper Island is a non-profit charitable corporation, operating solely from donation from private individuals, Corporations, Civic and Business groups, along with charitable activities held by Kentucky State Police posts across the state. Some of the scheduled events in which funds are raised for Trooper Island are golf scrambles, motorcycle runs, fishing tournaments and a yearly statewide raffle. This year we are raffling off a 2009 Dodge Challenger. Tickets may be purchased at any Kentucky State Police Post (Charitable Gaming License #00006333).

Anyone that would like to make a donation can send a contribution directly to Trooper Island at Post Office Box 473, Albany, Kentucky 42602 or by contacting your local Public Affairs Officer at any of the Kentucky State Police Posts across the state. Currently Further information on Trooper Island can be found at www.kentuckystatepolice.org/island.htm.
