The Melrose Firefighters will be runing a "Fill the Boot" fundraiser
on Saturday October 21, 2000 at the intersection of Lebanon & Upham St. Our last time out you helped us raise
over $2,000.00 for the Muscular Dystrophy
Association . This fundraiser, added to the March "Shamrock Drive",
brought that years total to $3816.50. As in the past, this fundraiser was a success thanks to all the very patient
motorists that passed through our "Toll Booths". Thanks to you in 1998 we were able to present a check
in the amount of $4275 to help Jerry's Kids. That amount surpassed the previous years generous amount of $3575.
Firefighters from across the country have been long time partners in raising funds for the MDA, and we would like
to thank some of our own for giving up a Saturday and making this event a success. They were; Ed Collina, Bob Forsey,
Derry Madden, Jamie Gibson, Dan White, Bob Kendall, Chick McCarthy, Kevin O'Keefe, Phil Petrino and Jim Winslow.
Your continued support is greatly appreciated. Help us to beat last
