Around 106 families, representing 159 adults and 229 children, participated in the ninth annual Big Truck Night Thursday at Hillsboro Elementary School, according to organizers. In the past couple of years, the event has been a joint effort supported by the agencies and services within the Marion County Early Childhood Task Force. Big Truck Night provides a fun family learning environment filled with truck exploration, developmentally appropriate outdoor play experiences, social connections and exposure to community resources.
