Touch a Truck – Hawk Island

Cloudy skies and cool temperatures did not keep people away! Thank you to all of businesses and organizations who participated and made the day a huge success. Over 600 visitors came to see a great collection of BIG RIGS from our great Lansing community. This was a day made just for kids and they had a ton of fun. The trucks, bounce house, straw maze, animals from Potter Park Zoo were great hits. Thanks to our good friends from Capital City Renegades Disc Golf Club for bringing out a couple of baskets for visitors to try, check out the two new courses at Burchield Park.

A special thank you to our great and unstopable volunteers Alfreda, Crystal, Karen S., Ryan, Charlene, Frank, Joyce, Tom, Jerry, Gloria, Doris, Kyara, Stephen, Chuck, Zach and John. You made the day a great one for the kids and we hope to see you next year.
