The Livonia AM Rotary Club community came together in a show of dedication to service above self at the recent annual Touch A Truck, which left parents grateful, kids enthusiastic, and volunteers fulfilled. The world-class event was a resounding success, leaving Rotarians across the district smiling. The continued support of families year after year is a testament to the impact of this event. We extend our gratitude to everyone who participated and made the extra effort to ensure a memorable experience, and we can't wait to see what next year holds! 😎

It looks like our final attendance count was just above 8200, about 700 more than last year. A fantastic event that was such a credit to our Interact Club of Churchill High School (their new Principal was very impressed by them) and our own Livonia A.M. Rotary Club and tons of volunteers, not to mention donors/loaners of trucks, horses, vehicles, helicopters, and more. Bravo! The children and families were hugely grateful and expressed their thanks many, many times over. The last paid ($5 parking donation) customer came in at 1:40 p.m. We were amazed at how many still arrived late, after 1:00 p.m.
I was given a second toy car. But as people were leaving right at the end around 2:15, one sad boy's father told me he lost his little toy car. I told them to wait a moment, went to my car, and gladly gave the little tyke a new toy car. He was so happy. A cherry for me on top of the chocolate malt of a grand day in Livonia at Greenmead!
Bravo to you who were still putting things away after 3:30, when this old body gave out. God's blessings to you all.
