Community Helps Woman After Fall

Tricia Barnum was injured doing maintenance on her mother's motel, Jeannies Dream Motel on Route 20, Friday, June 25.


She was airlifted to Upstate Medical Center with extensive injuries. After surgery her doctor seems optimistic she will make a good recovery with lots of care and rehabilitation.


In addition to helping out her mother, Barnum works at Scenic View Campground and the Mount Markham School District. Barnum will be out of work while she undergoes rehabilitation.


Scenic View Campground staff set up a GoFundMe page for Barnum called Tricia Barnum's Recovery and Medical Expenses. The goal is to raise $5,000 to help Barnum.
