Keep on truckin'-for a good cause

Vermont Adult Learning is sponsoring Big Truck Day on Saturday, May 30th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the American Legion on Boardman Street in Middlebury.

This fun-filled family event will feature many big trucks (and some smaller ones) such as a dump truck from Bradford Trucking, a fire engine, two types of ambulances from Middlebury Volunteer Ambulance Service, Middlebury police car, a monster truck from Denecker Chevrolet, a cement truck from J.P. Carrerra & Sons, buses from Betcha Transit and ACTR, a cherry picker truck from Brown's Tree Service to name a few.

In addition to the trucks, there will be other family fun such as a jumping tent, food for sale, clowns, face painting, and other games and activities for children and families. A raffle drawing will be held at the event for prizes donated by many area businesses. Admission is free for children; $5 for adults. The event will be held rain or shine.

Proceeds from Big Truck Day will benefit students of Vermont Adult Learning and the Vermont Adult Learning Childcare Center. Vermont Adult Learning, a member of the statewide Learning Works network, is the leading provider of adult education and literacy services in Vermont.

The Vermont Adult Learning Childcare Center, NAEYC accredited with an on-site Headstart Program, is a multi-age program with an enrollment of 15, ranging from toddler to age 5. For more details about Big Truck Day e-mail khall@vtadultlearning.org or ca;; 388-4392.
