Kids of all ages enjoyed the Touch a Truck event sponsored by Dunes Leathernecks Detachment Marine Corps League members and hosted by Valpo Parks at Central Park Plaza earlier this month. These kids bundled up for the event and got up close to this Porter County sheriff's officer and his vehicle, asking questions and talking with the officer.

 

 

Parks officials in Valparaiso, along with Dunes Leathernecks Detachment Marine Corps League. hosted the third annual Touch a Truck Toys for Tots Toy Drive. Kids of all ages enjoyed the opportunity to explore their favorite big rigs, such as firetrucks, police cars, buses, utility trucks, semi trucks and limos. Santa and Mrs. Claus enjoyed the festivities, as well. The three-hour event collected approximately 12 barrels of toys and almost $500 for the local Toys for Tots campaign. Parks staff members Helene Pierce and Dan McGuire, Dunes Leathernecks Detachment Marine Corps League members, along with Touch a Truck vehicle suppliers pose for a photo with Santa and Mrs. Claus at Central Park Plaza.
