Honey Straws to Trooper Island Camp

Earlier this year, the Walter T. Kelley Company donated honey straws to Trooper Island Camp. This camp was developed by the Kentucky State Police as part of a long range program of public service to the youth of Kentucky. It is a place where the tensions and turmoil of our everyday lives can be forgotten; and for one week young people can be given a touch of hope and desire for a better tomorrow.

Each Thursday at camp, Troopers prepare the picnic meal and distribute straws afterward. Camp Director / Commander Sergeant Craig Sutton noted that the kids really enjoy the honey straws, but that “We had to sacrifice a few straws on ourselves to show them how to get the honey out.” Honey straws were also used to reward campers who helped in cleanup at the cafeteria throughout the week.
