Touch-A-Truck — Big Hit at Community Days 21017
The West Deer Township Community Days Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all the guests, participants, sponsors, West Deer Township Employees, Board of Supervisors and Parks and Recreation Board for permitting such an event. If it weren’t for the aforementioned the two-day event would not be possible. This year’s event was well attended and a great success. We are looking forward to Community Days 2018.

We would like to thank all participants and sponsors for their support of breast cancer awareness. A donation of $3,200.00 was presented to the Adagio Group which will benefit local residents with breast cancer.
Some of the attractions on Saturday were the wild animal show, K-9 demonstration, children’s water battle, karaoke and the ice cream eating contest sponsored by Edwards Ice Cream. The win-

All of these events were well attended and
it appeared that everyone had a great time. The newest attraction in 2017 was Touch a Truck. We are proud to say that it was the hit of community days. Young and old enjoyed all the equipment that was on display. The 27 pieces of equipment ranged from race cars, buses, backhoes, pavers, rollers, excavators, various large trucks, farm equipment and all
types of emergency vehicles.
