Martin Family Scholarships and other worthy causes local to Lake Carey and Wyoming or Bradford Counties.  Ralph V. Martin Sr. purchased a small cottage on the lake in October 1958.  Since then, 4 generations of the Martins have enjoyed the recreation and lake community and want to showcase the value of this natural treasure.
