DPW to host Truck Day

The town’s Department of Public Works is hosting a Truck Day open house Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., when visitors will be able to get a close look at heavy-duty vehicles, use a metal detector and other equipment, and learn more about backyard composting and the growth cycle of trees. The free event will be held at the Samuel Hadley Public Services Building, 201 Bedford St., to celebrate National Public Works Week. Light refreshments will be served.
