Three of us from Wisconsin took the tour through Watkins Glen and were amazed at the Falls and especially the rock formations. At the end of the tour we took a wrong turn and ended up in St. Mary's Cemetery. After going through the falls, we ended up in St Mary's Cemetery. (We missed any signs that would have warned us that we were at the end of the Glen if there were any.) After trying to find our way, getting tired from walking so much, and getting colder and colder, we called 911 and told them we were lost. Using the GPS location of our phone, they sent a squad to where we were. Occifer — I mean officer — Jumpper came to the rescue within probably ten minutes and couldn't have been nicer. He verified who we were, got us in the warmed back seat, and, not being far from our hotel, brought us there. We were able to joke among ourselves and with Jumpper about our plight and rescue. He dropped us off at our motel which was adjacent to the Glen. We tried to offer him a reward that he could have kept for himself but said if we wanted to make a donation to the Police Benevolent Association that would be fine. He would not take cash for himself. So here's our donation. Kudos to your Police department and officer Jumpper! What could have been disaster for us turned into being rescued minutes after the call and THEN joking around among ourselves and with Jumpper about plight. (What a nice guy!) Watkins Glen was awesome and so were the folks involved in rescuing us. Thanks so much. We hope our check (sent via mail) makes your next event even better. Thanks so much for being so nice and prompt.

Best Wishes,
Scott Ohlman and William Klitzkie of Raymond, WI and Connie Nico of Waupun, WI.
