Burlington

Truck Day coming to town

Continue reading below

Residents have the chance to see a wide assortment of large vehicles at the annual Burlington Municipal Truck Day on Sept. 15. Selectmen recently gave their permission for organizers to hold the annual event, which is set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the town common, on Center Street (Route 3A). The vehicles on display will include dump trucks, excavators, cranes, front-end loaders, and bulldozers. There will also be fire engines, including Burlington’s new pumper truck. Children are invited to sit in the vehicles, which are provided by municipal departments from Burlington and neighboring communities, and private contractors. The event will also feature music and the sale of food. All proceeds from the food sales will go to support local Scout troops and the community organization, People Helping People. Burlington Municipal Truck Day, which began 16 years ago, is operated entirely by volunteers and using private donations. Al Fay, a former selectman and retired Burlington firefighter, organizes the event with the help of Doug Gillingham, the town’s parks superintendent, and Wally DeCost, another retired Burlington firefighter.
