As Kershaw County enters the annual Labor Day weekend, it’s also time for local fire departments to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Firemen in Camden and Lugoff took to the streets Thursday and are doing so again today and Saturday, holding a boot they hope to fill with donations from passing motorists. Tuesday morning, the Camden Fire Department (CFD), Lugoff-Fire Rescue (LF-R) and MDA held a kickoff event to prepare for the weekend ahead.
