Thursday, June 24, 2010

The Iowa State Reserve Law Officers Association (ISRLOA)

sponsors five children each year to the Wildwood Hills Ranch in St.

Charles. Tyler Olson, of Cherokee, and Aaron Ramos and Zac Nierling,

of Storm Lake, were three of those attending the ranch during the

week of June 21-25.

The Buena Vista County and Cherokee County Juvenile Court

services helped with the selection of the children. ISRLOA Second

Vice President Scott Mack, of the Buena Vista County Sheriff's Office

Reserves, and Past President Rod Fitzgerald, of the Cherokee Police

Department Reserves, provided the transportation to the Wildwood

Hills Ranch.

The Wildwood Hills Ranch is a 400-acre nonprofit facility

set in the scenic hills of Madison County Founded in 2001, the ranch

is an ideal setting for children to learn new life skills and gain

confidence. Campers enjoy first-class facilities and recreational

activities including horseback riding, water sports, team building,

arts and crafts and much more.

The ISRLOA was founded in Marshalltown in 1973. It is a

nonprofit fraternal organization that represents reserve peace

officers in the state of Iowa.
