In conjunction with the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association’s national telethon, members of the St. Clair Fire Protection District conducted their annual Fill the Boot campaign Saturday at R&R Ace Hardware and the St. Clair Mobil Gas Mart.

Local firefighter Dan Cooley said the local efforts raised about $1,900. At left, Jim Plymale, director of the Franklin County Baptist Association, contributes to the campaign as he places some money in a boot held by SCFPD firefighter Andy Branscum at R&R Ace Hardware.
