Touch A Truck was enjoyed by many!

Touch A Truck was held at the high school. The event was put on by the Hopkinton Library Foundation. Kids got the opportunity to sit in construction trucks, landscaping trucks, dump tucks, tractors and more.

A train was also driving attendees around the site, many of the kids enjoyed honking the truck horns and playing with the steering wheels. Despite all the
equipment and construction vehicles that were available to climb in, sometimes the simple things in life are the most appealing as it appeared a moving truck with bubble wrap was the most popular feature as kids and even some adults stomped around to hear the crackle.

The Event raised over $4,000 for the Library foundation and a good time was had by all who attended.
