MDA Fundraising




FireFighter Bob Forsey

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 years totals.
