Bladen Community College Hosts Annual Touch-A-Truck Event
Bladen Community College (BCC) invites families with children of all ages and adults alike to climb aboard a variety of vehicles at the 2nd Annual Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, June 04, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. until Noon.
This family event will take place at Bladen Community College’s campus in Parking Lot K, the first parking lot on the right when you turn off of HWY 41. Truck and equipment operators will be on hand to demonstrate how their vehicles work and explain what they do. Check out a fire engine, sanitation truck, aerial bucket truck, dump truck, tractors, rescue and emergency vehicles, and much more!
“We’re thrilled to be hosting our second year of Touch-A-Truck,” said Sondra Guyton, VP for Institutional Advancement and Community Relations. “This annual community event gives kids of all ages a chance to have fun and expand their growing minds by exploring many different types of trucks and equipment.” She added that “BCC is dedicated to educating our citizens of all ages through innovative and engaging methods. It’s my hope that this event inspires many of our kids to learn more about engineering, the public services our community provides, and the big trucks and machines that help us make Bladen County the great community it truly is.” No enrollment is required for Touch-A-Truck. This free program is open to the public. While you are at Touch-A-Truck, make sure you stop by the BCC Career Summer Camp booth to register for summer camp! Summer Career Camp will run from June 20 – 23.
