Trooper Island News Release

Corbin Wal-Mart Presented A Check To Trooper Island

Date of News Release: 08/24/2005

On Wednesday, August 24, 2005 Clark Susong co-manager at Wal-Mart store number 1259 in Corbin presented Trooper Island Camp Director Trooper Craig Sutton a check for $1000.00 to benefit Trooper Island camp. This year Trooper Island celebrated their 40th anniversary as a camp. In 1965 the Kentucky State Police developed Trooper Island on Dale Hollow Lake near the Clinton-Cumberland County line as a boy's camp. Trooper Island has since been converted to a co-ed camp, now serves approximately 700 boys and girls ages 10 to 12 selected from across the commonwealth at to attend camp at no charge during the summer months. Those children chosen may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend a camp. Trooper Island also holds three camps for those with special needs such as PKU (phenylketonuria), Heart Complications (Camp Bravehearts) and a Hispanic camp. Trooper Island is a non-profit charitable corporation, which operates from contributions and charitable activities held by Kentucky State Police posts across the state. Some of the ways in which money has been raised for Trooper Island are golf scrambles, motorcycle runs, fishing tournaments and the yearly statewide raffle.

Anyone that would like further information or would like to make a donation to Trooper Island can visit the Trooper Island web site at www.kentuckystatepolice.org/text/trooperisle.htm or by contacting your local Public Affairs Officer at any of the Kentucky State Police Posts across the state.
