Second-annual Touch A Truck was very successful

Allegan County Head Start’s second-annual Touch A Truck event brought hundreds of families to the Allegan County Fairgrounds Thursday, July 17.
Children were able to explore vehicles from ambulances to road commission equipment to fishing boats, and everything in between.
Crafts and other activities were available through several county organizations, including a big wheel race track, bubbles, race car crafts and a bounce house.
