of event is good for younger kids, so they can have a respect for those that protect and serve our community. They can learn respect of what goes into the public works, keeping our streets clean, the police department and more.”
Both Warner and Johnson agreed they’d be coming back next year with Ellie, as long as she still loved trucks and tractors.
Nick Anderalli, a 7-yearold who attends E.A. McAllister Elementary in Sherrill, has come to the Fall Truck event multiple times.
“I like seeing all these big trucks, they’re great,” Anderalli said. “My first time coming here, I got a little scared when trucks would honk their horns, but not anymore.”
Besides trucks and working vehicles, a DIRT car was on display and children were given a chance to sit behind the wheel.
Brian Hall said Mike Richmond was the driver of the 22 car. Hall said hewas there for the Fall Truck Event in Richmond’s place.
“Mike acquired the car about a month ago and has had one race so far at Fonda in Fultonville out east, just to shake the car down,” Hall said. “They’re hopefully going to race on Oct. 28 at the Utica-Rome Speedway.”
No matter if it was a DIRT car, an ambulance or police cruiser, children had the chance to sit behind the wheel and learn about the vehicle, including how it worked and what it was used for.
