SVEC In the Community – December 2022

December 2022

Kids learn while having fun at the third annual event

Last month’s Touch-a-Truck event hosted by SVEC was a huge success, giving kids from across the Suwannee Valley a chance to sit behind the wheel of a variety of specialized vehicles and meet the professionals who operate them on a regular basis.

The November 12 event featured patrol cars, a crane, helicopter, Humvee, tow truck, concrete mixing truck, school bus and firetrucks, along with a bucket truck and digger derrick from SVEC.

When kids weren’t exploring the vehicles on display, they enjoyed face painting, a visit from Smokey Bear, balloon animals, cornhole games, bounce houses, a giant game of Connect Four and airplane barrel carts rides.

All proceeds from food and drink sales went to United Way of Suwannee Valley. Thank you to all of our sponsors and to everyone who came out to join in the fun.
