Jeff Rousseau, left, Capt. Dave Crichton, Capt. Wayne Riches, and Brad Townson were among the Fort Frances Fire Brigade members who performed the daunting task of packing 160 Christmas hampers for local individuals, couples, and families yesterday morning at the Salvation Army food bank here. The brigade has made it a Christmas tradition to pack the hampers. The full- and part-time firefighters also got some help from the Fort Frances branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association and Salvation Army staff.
