Touch-a-Truck event on Saturday, May 28 from 7:00 a.m. to noon at the Welland Farmers’ Market
Welland, ON – The City of Welland, in partnership with Niagara Region is hosting a Touch-a-Truck event on Saturday, May 28 from 7:00 a.m. to noon at the Welland Farmers’ Market, located at 70 Young Street.
In celebration of National Public Works Week, the Touch-a-Truck event provides the public with an opportunity to “sit behind the wheel” of various City and Regional trucks, and also view equipment that is not typically accessible to the public. These vehicles assist staff with the daily maintenance of roads, water, sewer, parks and forestry infrastructure within Niagara.
National Public Works Week is a significant occasion for Public Works staff. It gives them the opportunity to connect with the public and provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the City’s and Region’s hard services. Vincent Beaudoin, General Foreman, Public Works for the City, encourages families to attend Touch-a-Truck and meet the staff. “This is a great opportunity for residents to learn a little more about what we do and see the vehicles that assist with our daily work. It is also a chance for youth to get a hands-on look at careers in public works,” said Beaudoin.
Welland is an authentic recreational canal city and home to over 50,000 residents, with over 272 acres of recreational waterway, and more than 400 acres of scenic parks. Visit www.welland.ca to learn more about the City and its services.
