FILL YOUR STOCKINGS SO THEY CAN FILL THEIR BOOTS - RDCK Firefighters appear in new calendar

Regional District of Central Kootenay volunteer fire departments are showing off their assets in a new calendar for a good cause—to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

"The calendar is a fun way to raise awareness of and money for this devastating disease while celebrating our hardworking and dedicated firefighters," said Chief Andrew Bellerby, the RDCK’s regional fire chief.

The calendar features personnel from many of the RDCK’s 18 fire halls in a variety of scenarios and settings.

"Everyone had a great time contributing to this project," said Chief Bellerby, who added that he hopes the calendar may inspire some residents to join the fire service.

"Our volunteers give so much to our communities and to charity," said Bellerby. "They hold an annual Fill the Boot campaign to benefit Muscular Dystrophy Canada. This calendar will help with that fundraising effort."

With the holiday season approaching, the calendar makes a great stocking stuffer. The calendars are available for purchase for $10 at any of the RDCK’s 18 fire halls or any RDCK office.
