If ever an event was designed to put a smile on every child’s face, this was it.

On Saturday, Avon Township held its third annual “Touch-A-Truck” event at the Township Center in Round Lake Park.

And to the surprise of no one, youngsters seized upon the opportunity of a lifetime to have a great afternoon of climbing and giggling.

Ripe for the climbing were trucks from the fire department, police department, highway department, and the library.
