Happy to Help......I have a suggestion for your next Boot Drive. A little advance advertising may help considerably. I, like a lot of people, often do not carry cash. Just happened to have some this time but If you would put up some signs a few days prior to the Drive......More people would be prepared with some cash to drop in the Boot
I'm happy to be able to help the fire department with their boot drive.
