Touch-A-Truck was a day of fun for all ages

PARSIPPANY — The Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany held its Annual Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, June 15 attracting people from all over Morris County and all ages. An estimated 1,300 people enjoyed the event in beautiful sunny weather.

Chairman Nicolas Limanov said there were over 60 vehicles, from fire trucks, ambulances, busses, to dump trucks and everything in between.  People of all ages had fun touring the property and seeing the many vehicles.

Remo D’Alessandro, Parsippany Police Department, gave all the children a “ticket” which was redeemable for a free ice cream at the Dairy at Lake Hiawatha.

Touch-a-Truck is a fundraising event to benefit the Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany. Children of all ages can have a hands-on experience with all kinds of vehicles and interact with community support leaders like police officers, firemen, first aid squad volunteers, sanitation workers and many more!

Every child received a goody bag full of surprises including a free ice cream cone, free Chick-fil-A sandwich, a sundae from Applebees and so much more.

Aside from being a great time for the family, this event helps support our major initiatives. Kiwanis International is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Our Parsippany based group supports and sponsors many community causes.

Restaurant Depot supplied the food for all volunteers and First Responders and IHOP Parsippany cooked the delicious breakfast.

Chairman Nicolas Limanov said “It was a wonderful day watching all the children having fun, asking questions and taking pictures. I was happy to add many new vendors including the State Police Helicopter, and the committee expects to add even more for next year. I want to thank all the committee members who helped making this event very successful.”
