BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – The finest Eastchester construction, police, fire and other emergency vehicles will be on display in Tuckahoe next month when the Junior League of Bronxville hosts its annual Touch-A-Truck event for local families.
Touch-A-Truck, one of the Junior League’s longest running events, gives children the chance to climb aboard the bulldozers, tractor trailers, fire trucks and other vehicles that help support the community. The men and women that drive the trucks will also be on hand to answer questions about their functionality and what purposes they serve to better the community.
Eileen Palma, the co-chair for Touch-A-Truck, said the event provides an opportunity for children to get hands-on with a variety of vehicles that are utilized in public service, construction, utility, landscaping and transportation. There will also be a section of antique and classic cars for parents to peruse while their children are learning.
“Touch-A-Truck gives the Junior League of Bronxville an opportunity to bring families from very town in our service area together and allows young people the freedom to explore a variety of vehicles in one big community gathering,” she said.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 5 at the Immaculate Conception School on Winterhill Road in Tuckahoe, the vehicles will be on display for the public. Tickets are already available online for $10, though they will be available on the day of the event for $15. Families of four can get family passes for $30.
“Children will be able to climb on and ask questions about the vehicles and equipment, and learn how these machines help us and our community,” co-chair Nicole Smith added.
Rosalia Nocerino, the vice president of communications for the Junior League of Bronxville, said the proceeds from this event will be used to benefit outreach programs that aid children in the village, Eastchester, Yonkers and Mount Vernon.
