Touch-A-Truck event includes emergency vehicles and a dump truck

Tutor Time Child Care/Learning Center at 708 Bridgeport Avenue will host a Touch-A-Truck event for area children and their families.

The event will take place on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 10 to 2 p.m. at the school. Trucks and vehicles of all shapes and sizes will be on site for kids to climb in, honk the horn and discover how different vehicles works and what functions they play. Some of the vehicles include a fire truck, police car, ambulance, military vehicle, dump truck and excavator.

There will also be face-painting, raffles, a moon bounce and snacks and refreshments. The event is open to all families in the community. The event is free, however, new toy donations and/or cash donations will be accepted to support the Ronald McDonald House.

"We really encourage area families to come out and participate in the event and have a little fun outside in the great summer weather," Stacy Mullenax, center director. "We're confident that children of all ages will have fun and it's the perfect opportunity for families to spend some quality time together while supporting a worthy cause."
