PARSIPPANY — The Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany held it’s annual “Touch-A-Truck” event on Saturday, June 20.

When the children arrived, they received a “goodie” bag from Jersey Central Power and Light which contained items such as pencils and glow braclets. And when the children left, they received bottle of “bubbles.”

The event was well attended by many area children.  The children were able to sit on many vehicles:  fire trucks, ambulances, garbage trucks, street sweepers, Army trucks, police cars and more. Parsippany Rescue and Recovery and Parsippany CERT and RACES were also there demonstrating their services to the community in case of emergencies. The Parsippany Library was handing out coloring books

When the children visited the Parsippany Police Department they received a badge from Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Chief Paul Philipps and Captain John Wieners III.  They also gave the children a “TICKET” which summoned them to the Dairy at Lake Hiawatha for a free children ice cream cone.

Sunrise Shop Rite, Parsippany, was serving hamburgers and hot dogs and the Kona Ice Truck has flavored shaved ice treats.

The children could have their face painted and Robbie the Balloon man created a special balloon figure.

Tech Toys were showing off some of their remote cars, and other toys, as well as a “DRONE” was flying over the event taking pictures.

All proceeds will be used by the Kiwanis Club of Greater Pasippany Foundation to support local projects that will “change the world one child and one community at a time”.
