One of the only bell ringers out on Friday was a World War II veteran Charles Seifert of Mason City. Seifert has been rining holiday bells for the Salvation Army since the 30's. He says he has been doing it as a way to try and help out other veterans like himself.

"It isn't a job everyone enjoys," he says. "People think they are embarassing themselves. They aren't emabrassing themselves they are helping out our veterans who do need help."

The next day the volunteers will be needed for bell ringing is Friday November 17th.
