On Sunday, Aug. 20, more than 400 people enjoyed the Shaarey Zedek Yom Truck (truck day) museum. Children and their parents were able to sit in a firetruck, meet Southfield firefighters, learn about what they do and receive firefighters’ hats. They played in a S.W.A.T. mobile unit and climbed on tractors. They honked the horn of the big green Tamarack bus and heard the sirens of an ambulance.
They also visited a DTE truck, a limousine, an excavator and listened to the music of Star Trax. Train rides around the parking lot were a highlight of the day. Families brought canned food donations and filled a Forgotten Harvest truck, enjoyed Kona ice cool treats and jumped in a construction bounce house.
Yom Truck was sponsored by Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield and co-sponsored by Hillel Day School in Farmington Hills.
