Toni Hokanson and Touch A Truck (Aired on May 26 and May 27th, 2018)

Touch a Truck in New Paltz (Aired on May 26 and 27, 2018)

New Paltz Rotarian Toni Hokanson visits RadioRotary to promote the annual “Touch-a-Truck” fair at Ulster County Fairgrounds. While the basic attraction for kids are the trucks, with a chance to climb all over them and sound their horns, the inexpensive family outing includes much more in the way of free entertainment, ranging from the Hurd’s Family Cow Train (cars shaped like cars, pulled by a tractor) to the giant pile of mulch for young mountain-climbers to tackle. The only additional expense is for fair food or a helicopter ride. “Touch-a-Truck” is a major fundraiser for New Paltz Rotary, despite the low per person admission (truck exhibitors also support it with entrance fees), which helps support the good works of the club. These include a weekly food-backpack program for children in the New Paltz schools who would otherwise be food deprived and scholarships, including a new 2-year scholarship to SUNY Ulster College for students whose parents did not attend college. There is much more to be heard.
