I drove down 99-E to/fro Safeway this afternoon and ran into the Canby Volunteer Firefighters doing their “Fill the Boot” fundraiser near the Grant intersection. I am not sure what this fundraiser goes towards, but it was fun to be stopped by these guys.
They waved down the cars as they passed, asking drivers to drop coins in the boots. AJ here stopped me (see photo below). I realized that this is part of Canby’s small town charm: in a big cities drivers wouldn’t be as willing to stop on a highway like that. 🙂
