Saturday marks the third year for a unique fundraising event at Logan’s Adams Elementary School that Principal Jed Grunig calls “Keep on Trucking.”Cris Rudie, one of the event volunteers, says the purpose behind the event is to help families that have students attending Adams Elementary school.”This is to benefit families who are struggling. It may be an immediate need for food or utilities or medical. Whatever the need, they can come in and talk with the Principal. Later, the families pay that money back. There are a variety of ways they can do that, either with cash or possibly by serving as a volunteer at the school or in the community.”Saturday’s event at the Adams School (500 north and 400 east) amounts to a big truck rally/fundraiser. It lasts from noon until four p.m. There is a small admission charge.”Children will get a chance to see, up close, the size of some of these trucks, possibly climb up inside them and ask questions. There will be a variety of games for them to play, also.Rudie said there will be a cement truck, more than one fire truck, plus different types of delivery trucks and tow trucks in addition to cars, some old and some new. She expects more than 20 large trucks will be on display. Logan City will block off 600 north from 400 east to 500 east to accommodate the trucks.”We’re hoping to get a motorcycle from one of the local law enforcement agencies too.”Rudie said food and treats would be available at reasonable prices. She said area markets have donated most of the food.
