Area kids got their first taste of what it’s like to operate some heavy duty equipment July 28 at Eagles Aerie 2051’s touch-a-truck event. Wellington fire chief Mike Wetherbee was on hand to greet visitors on one of his department’s trucks as well as members of the Lorain County Sheriff’s Bomb Squad to show off some of their high-tech equipment.
