Touch a Truck draws a crowd in Cold­brook

Annapolis Valley Register - - COMMUNITY -

There’s some­thing about big rigs that never fails to draw a crowd.

Guests of all ages took ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity to check out a long line of ser­vice ve­hi­cles up close dur­ing the Touch a Truck event at the Cold­brook and Dis­trict Lions Club June 3.

The dis­play fea­tured a wide range of demon­stra­tions and ve­hi­cles, in­clud­ing a fire en­gine, Nova Sco­tia Power truck, waste col­lec­tion truck, mon­ster truck, trac­tor, work­ing crane – and more.

Kids were ea­ger to test out the horns, and guests were in­vited to nom­i­nate their favourite en­try for a Chil­dren’s Choice prize.

The pro­ceeds raised at Touch a Truck will ben­e­fit three char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions that as­sist fam­i­lies and chil­dren: Cam­paign for Kids (sup­port­ing un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren and youth in Kings County), Light 4 Learn­ing (rais­ing money for a va­ri­ety of com­mu­nity needs such as so­lar light sys­tems for schools, health cen­tres in ru­ral Uganda, East Africa) and the Cold­brook and Dis­trict Lions Club (through the Boys and Girls Com­mit­tee).

The Touch a Truck event hosted at the Cold­brook and Dis­trict Lions Club June 3 will ben­e­fit three char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions that as­sist chil­dren and fam­i­lies.

There was a wide ar­ray of ve­hi­cles on dis­play, catch­ing the in­ter­est of the young and young-at- heart alike.
