This summer, we’ve brought you stories of the people who make up the Thousand Islands. In our series Among the Thousand, we look at one island at a time, to tell the story of what makes each community stand out.
Today we turn to Round Island, just down river from Clayton. Richard Withington has lived on the island for 40 years. He's a retired orthopedic surgeon and a member of the Clayton Fire Department. If something happens in the islands, he’s often the first person on the scene.
