Local farmers, trucking companies, and even the National Guard graciously contribute their time and vehicles to make this event a success. As children roam from one vehicle to the next, they're encouraged to touch, smell, and even sit in the driver's seat, igniting their curiosity and sparking their imaginations.

Touch a Truck isn't just about fun and games—it's also about giving back to the community. While admission is free, TLC Preschool welcomes donations to support its educational endeavors. In a time when small schools face budget constraints, these fundraisers play a crucial role in providing enriching experiences for students and securing essential resources for learning.

So mark your calendars, gather the family, and head down to Orion High School on April 28th for a day of fun, exploration, and, of course, truck-tastic adventures. Whether you're a budding truck enthusiast or simply looking for a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon, Touch a Truck promises an experience that's larger than life.
