Canton Daily Ledger reports on Canton Local 1897 MDA activities. 

Canton Firefighters were collecting donations for the Muscular Dystrophy Association cause on Saturday, August 25, 2007.  The annual Fill-the-Boot drive was conducted at two intersections, Main and Locust & 5th and Linn.  Canton Firefighter Dan Neptun was in charge of the year’s event and says the total raised was $2,524.68 which exceeds last year’s total by over $600.  “Thanks you to the citizens of Canton and all those visitors who contributed.  The money will help more children attend MDA camp.”  Neptun expects a representative of the fire department to present the money during the annual MDA telethon scheduled over Labor Day weekend.
