Children between the ages of nine and twelve from throughout Oswego County are shown preparing to board a bus on Sunday to begin a week’s adventure at the 36th Annual New York State Sheriffs’ Association Institute’s Summer Camp located at Camp Iroquois in Penn Yan.
Oswego County Sheriff Reuel A. Todd (center-rear) was on hand to see the campers off along with Deputy Robert Ramsey, president of the Oswego County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (far left).
Deputy Ramsey presented each camper with a T-shirt donated by the Deputies’ Association.
