HOLIDAY KINDNESS. Hoping to make this year’s Christmas season just a little brighter were the Arthur Volunteer Fire Department as they conducted their annual “Fill the Boot” campaign on Friday and Saturday, November 25 and 26. Firemen collected donations in the firefighter’s boots from motorists and those walking downtown at the intersection of Vine and Illinois Streets . The campaign raises money for the fire department’s Toy and Food program which provides gift boxes for less fortunate families in the area. Mother Nature continued with the great weather providing them with a sunny and warm morning for conducting the drive. Pictured collecting on Saturday morning included Steve Gingerich, Jason Schrock, Bruce Helmuth, Mo Chupp, Duane Hopkins, Nelson Zook, Randy Rafferty, Michael Yoder, Daryl Earnst, and Joe Gingerich.
