The Trucks & Tractors portion helps children connect vehicles to possible careers in construction, manufacturing, emergency response, sanitation, and many others. Children and their families will have the opportunity to touch, sit-in and explore real vehicles from a number of different industries. This year we have been lucky enough to work with our local Fire, Police and Public Works Departments, along with A&W Sanitation. Other vehicles include Eastcoast RC Trucks, Guilford Texaco and More! Thank you to all for donating their time and vehicles to help educate our community. Trucks & Tractors is a fun way to help educate the community on how to interact with the vehicles safely.

It’s that time of year to get rid of all those confidential papers you don’t know what to do with. The Shredding Source is going to be on site from 10:30am to 1:00pm. This is a FREE Shredding event, with option to make a donation.
