For the 36th time the Port Angeles Firefighters and volunteers along with Santa will be having their Operation Candy Cane. They missed last year because of COVID restrictions so this year they are back with the same desire to help those less fortunate. And this year they have added two days to their campaign. The first six days they will follow their usual path throughout Port Angeles with their siren and music going handing out candy canes in exchange for cans of food or money for the local foot banks. The last two days they will be outside of PA for two nights sitting at Roosevelt school and Dry Creek school for two hours each.
