Touch The Trucks 2019 in Celebration of National Public Works Week (May 19-25)

The Department of Public Works had another spectacular day for our 12th annual Touch-The-Trucks event! More than 1,000 people attended the annual event and were able to explore more than 35 pieces of equipment in celebration of National Public Works Week. The Rhythm Room once again added a special beat to the fun with their amazing drum demonstration and interaction.

The children enjoyed having the opportunity to sit in the driver’s seat and discover what the worlds of DPW, Fire, Police, Electric, Homeland Security, Military, Construction, Gas, United States Post Office and Recreation are like. The staff was most welcoming and patient explaining details of the trucks and allowing excited parents and children to safely climb aboard.  They were able to see, touch, interact with and learn about special vehicles and big trucks and their functions.

It was so exciting to have The Bristol County Sheriff’s Department join us again this year with their incredible Mobile Incident Command Center as well as The National Guard with a great opportunity for children and parents to explore their equipment.

We would like to extend a big thanks to Steven Carvalho and his remarkable staff for assisting in the organization and their great hospitality. We would also like to thank the Department of Public Works, North Attleborough Parks and Recreation, Electric, Fire, Police, Landfill, and School Departments as well as The Bristol County Sherriff Department, National Guard, United States Post Office, Waste Management and Above Grade Excavation for bringing their sparkling clean trucks, cruisers, fire engines, mobile command unit, buses, specialized equipment and more. We would also like to thank the Rhythm Room for their participation and energizing our event with their amazing skills.

We are also so very grateful to all the volunteers who worked tirelessly on a beautiful day to make sure everything ran smoothly. We hope you enjoyed the twelfth annual Touch the Trucks event and look forward to hearing about your experience and how we can make it even bigger and better for next spring. Our most heartfelt thanks to all!!!!!!!!
