Salisbury has one each year, I believe it was a few weeks ago though.  I am good friends with a city grounds maintenance employee that has a '67 AM General M35 and he took his truck last year but wasn't able to go this year.  He said that the city brings out some of their dump trucks and tractor trailers, and even some of the heavy construction equipment and the kids love it.  He said it was quite a crowd there last year.

This is a remote operation.. I live south of Greenville SC, daughter and family live in Doyelstown PA. Due to work schedule we do not get up there often enough. Took them to Macungie last year with my Diamond T 201. Then had a development wide show Sat nite after supper with it still on the trailer. I gave my grandson a lifetime membership for his birthday last year so hopefully he and his Dad will continue interest in the hobby.

When I saw this thread I sent her an email to go to it and the above info is what she returned, which I forwarded to the local chapter president.

Will keep ya'all posted on the results as I fully agree that there should be a connection made, National office to National office, for the purpose of member recruitment and generating interest with the younger generation.

I didn't know that this was an established idea nationwide.  There's a "Touch a Truck" event in the Twin Cities, MN area Saturday, May 21 afternoon in St. Louis Park, just west of Minneapolis.  Specifically at the American Tire Distributers Warehouse, east of MN Hwy 100 and north of 36 St, behind the Post Office.

The fundraiser is for a handicapped accessible playground in the Minnehaha Falls Park.  The group is Falls For All, a group that supports Minneapolis Parks.   I had no idea about the Touch a Truck but a flyer got sent to us and we put a writeup in the ATHS MN Metro Chapter newsletter this month.  Contact halvop2000 at yahoo . com (I'm not making this a link, you need to use the @ symbol and take out spaces to make a usable address)
