Light drizzle and grey skies didn’t prevent children of all ages from taking part in city of Decatur’s annual Touch A Truck event March 26. Children, and adults, were allowed to climb on, sit in and even draw on county, city and private business vehicles. The hands-on event is an opportunity for the community to interact with the police offices, firefighters and city employees.
