On Saturday, October 13, 2018, the East Lyme Auxiliary of Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut and the East Lyme Parks and Recreation Department will co-sponsor our eleventh annual Touch A Truck event. This is a family event that will take place from 9:00AM. to 2:00PM. at McCook Point Park in Niantic, CT. This year there will be Horn Free Hour from 9:00AM to 10:00AM.
An event not to be missed, the Touch A Truck experience is for one and all, big and small. Spend some time with us and have yourself a ball. It’s an educational experience that will make you a ‘hero’ with your child/grandchild. Children can climb various vehicles, sit in the driver’s seat and discover the world of trucks. They will be able to see, touch, and interact with big trucks and learn their functions. This unique event will feature large trucks and heavy equipment from law enforcement, fire departments, commercial companies, industrial companies and rental companies.
Vehicle demonstrations will be conducted and we never know just who might make an appearance. In addition there will be face painting, hair beading, games and crafts. Refreshments will be available for sale.
The Rotary Club of Niantic has agreed to be with us again this year with Amber Alert. This is a great time to sign up and take steps to safeguard your children.
The suggested donation is $4.00 per person (ages 2 and up) to benefit the Child and Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut. Child & Family Agency nurtures children and families to develop their strengths through its service, partnership and advocacy. Its programs support children’s mental health, children’s physical healthcare, the prevention of child abuse, the treatment of family violence, teen pregnancy, parent education, child guidance, and childcare. With a heritage that dates from 1809, Child and Family has grown to become the largest non-profit children’s social service provider in southeastern Connecticut. Last year 18,000 families were served in 79 towns in New Haven, Middlesex, Windham and New London Counties.
