Gary Mervis, founder and chairman of Camp Good Days & Special Times, has been awarded the local FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award.

Brian P. Boetig, special agent in charge of the FBI office in Buffalo, said Mervis was picked because of his involvement with Camp Good Days and the Project Exile Advisory Board, a group dedicated to removing illegal guns from the streets.

Mervis received the commemorative award from Boetig during a ceremony at Camp Good Days, a summer camp for children and families whose lives have been touched by cancer.
