Al Wiesneth, HFPD For the past several years, firefighters from the Huntley Fire Dept. have had a "Fill The Boot" campaign. On May 6-7, the proceeds from our boot drive will help send young burn victims to camp this summer. These are children between the ages of 8-17 that have been scarred for life from burns. Burn Camp is held at the YMCA Camp Duncan, located near Fox Lake. The camp is approximately 400 acres on semi-private Fish Lake. Activities include boating, sailing, canoeing, fishing, archery, cmapouts, horseback riding, hiking, crafts and swimming. These young children can play and have fun together, sharing their experiences, and not feel self conscious about what others may be thinking of their scars. The Illinois Fire Safety Alliance Burn Camp, in cooperation with your local fire dep'artment and burn care facility, can make a difference for these unfortunate children. Look for the firefighters in the red vests that say "Help Burned Kids." They need your help. Make this summer a time lo remember for these youthful victims. We apprciate your contri¬ bution to "Fill The Boot."
