Revving up smiles with Trucks to Touch

JARVIS—The Week of the Child and Youth Committee of Haldimand Norfolk invited families to visit Jarvis Lions Park on September 18, 2022 for the annual Trucks to Touch. The popular event drew a large crowd as children learned more about a wide range of vehicles and anxiously awaited their turn to get in the driver’s seat. Above, 5-year-old Oliver Schilthuis experienced the weight of a firefighter’s gear with the help of Luanne Duxbury of the Jarvis Fire Department. 

There’s room for two on this tractor as 2-year-old Ruby Lindsay (left) shares the seat with big brother Henry, 4.

 

Row, 4, and Kearney, 7, Brinklow of Belleville enjoyed the event while visiting their grandmother, Darlene Butler of Six Nations. They are pictured learning how to operate the fire hose with instruction from Jarvis volunteer firefighter Glen Phibbs.
