Kids climb on trucks and enjoy activities from 11 to 2
The Butterfield Library will host the 10th Annual Big Truck Day on Sunday, June 7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This family event is affordable for everyone — admission is a donation that fits your budget.
Children of all ages are invited to climb on the trucks, backhoes and cranes and will even have the chance to beep the horn (only once, please)! The fire department and ambulance corps will be on hand to demonstrate their equipment and talk about their volunteer organizations.
Kids may also enjoy the jumpy castle, concession stand and the Construction Zone Game Carnival in the Reading Garden. They can play a game and receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize. Participants can vote for their favorite bookmark designs — winners will be announced at the event — and get a sneak peak at the Summer Reading Program, “Every Reader a Hero.”
Representatives from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department will be registering children in the Operation Safe Child ID Card Program. Each card contains the child’s name, biographical information and a fingerprint image of both index fingers. The card can be made in less than two minutes and can be carried in a wallet. In the event a child is missing, the card can be presented immediately to law enforcement officials and no time is lost in gathering the information.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Butterfield Library. For more information, visit butterfieldlibrary.org or call 845-265-3040. The library is located at 10 Morris Ave. in Cold Spring, near the intersection of Routes 301 and 9D.
