Sheriff Boat Patrols

Sheriff Boat Patrols focusing on lake safety have been reinstated on Sacandaga, Caroga and Canada Lakes this summer after a long absence.  While there is not currently Fulton County funding for these efforts, Sheriff Giardino has received a $10,000 donation from the Stewarts Foundation and $2000 from the Sacandaga Association to initiate patrols, most of which will be on Sacandaga Reservoir.  We will probably have four patrols on Canada Lake this summer, but could have more with private donations.  Should you want to contribute, checks can be sent to either the Fulton County Sheriff's Association, P.O. Box 20, Johnstown, NY 12095 (a tax exempt non profit), or to the Fulton County NY Public Safety Foundation, P.O. Box 99, Mayfield, NY 12117 (also a tax exempt non profit).  In the check memo indicate "boat patrol" or "general donation".
