“Touch a truck” and more

The Emsworth Fire Department’s rescue truck was just one of a variety of vehicles featured at the “Touch a Truck” event sponsored by Avalon Public Library last Saturday on California Avenue. Pictured here, 11-year-old Jacob Burns of Bellevue gets to experience sitting behind the wheel of the emergency vehicle. The avenue was lined with vehicles ranging from police cars to hearses and dump trucks. The event also featured a scavenger hunt and other activities for children, and fund-raisers for the library.
