Touch A Truck

Saturday, May 13, 2017 – 9am to 1pm

Who doesn’t love a good bulldozer, backhoe, dump truck, ambulance, or road grader? Who’s had to stop the car so your kids or grandkids can watch a steamroller at work on a hot summer day? Is the snowplow coming up your driveway an “event” at your house?

Whether we’re 4 or 40, the “truck bug” has bitten us all at some point. We all love trucks and the folks who drive them, and now you can spend a day in the driver’s seat playing with all the buttons and levers, trying on the firefighters’ bunker gear, moving mulch in a mini tractor, and exploring every inch of all the vehicles you can imagine!

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital is once again hosting Touch a Truck on Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM. More than 50 trucks will be converging in the BMH parking lot to provide an opportunity for kids (and kids at heart!) to “touch a truck” and raise funds for the hospital.
