Touch-a-Truck time by Shelley Heaphy

If there is anything my son is in love with it’s trucks. Big trucks, small trucks, tractors and construction vehicles – anytime he sees them pass by he gets so excited. We’ve been known to pull over and watch a tow truck hook a vehicle on, watch cars get unloaded from a car transporter and watch town vehicles doing their work. There’s so much to learn about these big vehicles.
We are so lucky in a small community like this to know many of the people who drive these vehicles. To our children these operators are everyday heroes. How cool is it that they get to spend every day driving in the trucks that they love so much.
Our first ever Touch-a-Truck in 2016 was a huge success, so it’s no surprise that we have been aching to do it again.
Events similar to ours have been running in Ottawa and other cities for many years. One of the things we love to do is bring some of the great activities you can find in the city to our town for our children to enjoy and this summer we can’t wait to host Touch-a-Truck.
