Helpful old fire truck

Each year in early December, the antique fire trucks in the Stratford District come out of mothballs to aid in the annual food collection for the local food bank. 

On that day, you can hear the horns and sirens for a couple of hours to let you know they are coming! The fire engines drive up each and every street in the district to collect food. Volunteers ride with them on the trucks and in vans that follow to pick up sacks of donations left beside the mailboxes or handed to them personally.

It's pretty cool to see.

I think that is an excellent way to gather some food for a food bank. Wonderful.

What a great use for the mothballed fire trucks!


Sing a song of scarlet—
Red on Christmas morn!
Sing a song of scarlet—
Blue is so forlorn!
Sing a song of scarlet—
Red for girls and boys!
Sing a song of scarlet—
Look at all those toys!
