Like a lot of other little kids, as a toddler, our son Jeremy was pretty much obsessed with trucks. He would page through picture books endlessly, identifying each vehicle: “roller, scraper, grader, fire truck, ambulance, backhoe.” On and on, in a kind of devotional litany to big machinery.

So, I expect this event on September 28th will be of great interest to many of New Rochelle’s youngest residents (and their parents!) Come to Hudson Park from 1pm to 3pm to “Touch a Truck” and also meet some of our city’s great First Responders.
