Newcomers Club Hosts Touch A Truck

by Paul Saulnier
June 16, 2018

This event is always a favorite for little boys and girls and the big boys and girls who bring them to the show.

Firefighter Brian Kramer, in the chrome shades and shaved head below, makes sure the kids remember their turn in the big red fire engine.

A sure sign of success is the long line to buy tickets to the event which supports the projects by members of the Newcomers Club.

The trucks don't have to be big to be an attraction. This 29 Ford truck came from Medway to introduce kids to transportation typical of almost 90 years ago.

Outpost Farm offerred "hay rides" or visitors could tour the grounds in the little train that could.

Stumpy's Tree Service displayed a very nice crane to visitors. Stumpy's often provides support to local organizations.

Nothing like an old pickup to brighten your spirits.

In addition to the trucks there were many local businesses and organizations on hand to inform visitors.

As a Newcomer "first time" volunteer at this event, I was amazed to see how well attended this event was. Congratulations to everybody who participated as a sponsor, a vendor, a neighbor and a community employee. I heard so many positive comments by parents who were grateful for the event, the good weather and the fun and food. Proceeds go right back into the community in grants. Ask the fire department, the Historical Society, the Food Bank, the Public Library and others. See you next year!
