There’s a strong connection between retired New York State Corrections Officer Gary Southard, the New York YMCA Camp down the road from his house in Huguenot, and the many gallons of maple syrup he helps to produce at the camp each spring. Gary, who was saved by a heart transplant several years ago, saw first hand how too many young lives were being lost to crime. Now, in the early months of each year when scores of maple trees around the camp give up some of their life sustaining sap to a labor intensive process that turns it into maple syrup, Gary gives back with hundreds of hours of his time so that disadvantaged kids have a chance to attend the camp in the summer.
