Good Citizenship in Alexandria Bay

On 4 August, 2013 Glen and Debby Borek were vacationing in Alexandria Bay, NY, staying at the Otter Creek Inn, owned by Dennis and Debby Butterfield.. In the early hours of the morning, Glen heard a man in trouble in the waters of Otter Creek. He helped him to shore, where he and Debby assisted him into their room to await the ambulance. After an evaluation by
ambulance personnel, he was sent home. The US Coast Guard Auxiliary and the 1000 Island Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution gave the Boreks Good Citizenship Awards for helping a stranger in danger of drowning. The Butterfields also gave them a free in season stay for the date of their choice.
