Troopers assisting Troups, photo by Patty Mondore

The third annual "North Country Troopers Assisting the Troops" guided fishing trip for our servicemen and women was held at Frink Park in Clayton, on Saturday, September 19th.   Over 80 soldiers were taken out fishing by local charter fishing guides from three area communities (Clayton, Alexandria Bay, and Cape Vincent).  They were then brought back to the main dock in a parade of the fishing boats where they were cheered by a large crowd of troopers, firemen and  civilians who came to support our troops.

Gold-Mountain  (Bob and Patty) produced a short video clip of the event:



Shortly after uploading our video we received a note from Mike Pastuf who is the Secretary of Troopers Assisting Troops.  He thanked us for our production and encouraged us to help get the word out so that more people will be there to cheer next year.  You can stay tuned to this blog for more details about next year's event as they become available. Patty will also be writing an article about it with more pictures for the Thousand Islands Life Magazine

Slack Chemical to Underwrite Boat Rides for Soldiers - Antique Boat Museum, Clayton NY



CLAYTON, New York (June 5, 2015) – The Antique Boat Museum (ABM), North America’s premier freshwater nautical museum based in Clayton, NY announced today a new initiative aimed at saluting our military members.

Throughout the 2015 season, the ABM and Carthage, NY based Slack Chemical Company will partner in an initiative geared toward making a soldier’s visit to the ABM more enjoyable and the full experience. Salute-A-Soldier presented by Slack Chemical will match visitor contributions of $10 to provide free rides aboard the ABM’s Miss 1000 Islands II, a replica 1930s speedboat that provides a daily schedule of 45-minute trips through the 1000 Islands from the ABM’s docks.

Miss 1000 Islands II

”We are extremely pleased to have Slack Chemical join us in this new program,” said Frederick H. Hager, the ABM’s Executive Director.  “Salute-A-Soldier will ensure that soldiers get out on the St. Lawrence River and fully-experience the beauty of the region, as well as the mystical joys of a wooden boat,” he added.

Throughout the summer, Slack Chemical will help to underwrite speedboat rides for our active military members, while museum visitors will be asked at Museum Admissions if they too wish to make a contribution to allow for a soldier to have the opportunity to experience the St. Lawrence River.

The Salute-A-Solider program will serve as an additional perk for active soldiers visiting the ABM. In May, the ABM announced that it will again serve as one of more than 2,000 Blue Star Museums across the country providing complimentary admission to active military and their immediate families. In addition, the ABM and River Hospital currently serve as partners to ensure that soldiers specifically in the River Community Wellness Program for PTSD patients get out on the water during required relaxation sessions.
