For The Kids (& The Kid In You)

Written by

When I first came to Akron, many moons ago, one of the very first promotions I was involved with was dressing up as Santa Claus and delivering presents to some children in need.  Santa didn't have his sleigh or Reindeer, but he did have a Fire Truck and I remember making the ride to school with the lights flashing and the siren blaring.  Even as a grown up kid there was just something about riding a fire truck.  The ride wasn't long, but the purpose was served and fun was had by all the firemen/women and especially the kids.  That's brings me to this blog post.

There is a special event coming this Sunday, September 8th, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.  It's the Norton Safety Forces First Annual Touch-A-Truck, 4060 Columbia Woods Drive, in Norton.  Everyone is invited to this free afternoon of fun and excitement at Columbia Woods Park.  On hand will be vehicles of all sizes, inflatables and food provided by Acme Fresh Market.

In addition, if your interested in bringing a specialized vehicle (construction, racing, etc), or would like to volunteer for the event, please contact LT. Krieger at 330-825-7815, ext. 208 or Ptl. H. Bauer at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for details.

Bring the kids and the kid in you for the Norton Safety Forces First Annual Touch-A-Truck, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Columbia Woods Park, in Norton.  Check out their Facebook Page by clicking here.
