Touch a Truck
« on: August 28, 2017, 06:33:37 AM »
I had posted a while back about working on a farm in Bloomfield that caters to handicap and underprivileged kids. They put on an outing called Touch a truck and usually have , Cop car, Crane, Ambulance , hay rides, and such.  Ive had my Jeep there a couple times and the kids climb all over and in her. Some of the parents ask questions .  I was wondering if anyone (a couple)  is interested in joining me there Oct. 14 for the day or a couple hours and just let the kids enjoy the day. I have to be honest , not all children have manners and I have had to repair my heater control which on a CJ hangs under the dash. I would suggest unplugging the horn on arrival . If interested , please respond to me this week for a count. Its at 158 AUER Farm Rd. in Bloomfield,Ct.   Thanks  Frank

Sorry I couldn't get over there for this. That's a great farm. My daughter has done their summer program 2 years in a row and it left a lasting impression on her.
