The annual Touch-a-Truck Day community event, sponsored by the Township’s Volunteer Fire Company, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 23, at the Good Hope Road fire station. Again this year, youngsters can touch, honk and climb on the many vehicles that will be on display. The Volunteer Fire Company will also conduct a chicken barbecue during the event starting at 11 a.m. and continuing until all 800 chicken dinners are sold.
The admission fee to the Touch-a-Truck event is $5 or two canned goods per car load, which will be donated to the New Hope Ministries. There will be an extra charge for the chicken barbecue dinner. Food concessions will also be available. Vehicles on display will include a fire truck, police car, ambulance, backhoe, tractor-trailer and a dump truck. Persons who have a truck or piece of equipment and would like to participate in the event, or need more information, are asked to call Doug Gochenaur at 909-6021.
