Big vehicles and their heroes on display

Police cars, fire trucks, and military vehicles are just a few attractions on display this morning at "Trucks and Heroes," hosted by S.M.I.L.E. on Down Syndrome. The event gives members of the community a chance to get up-close with big trucks and working vehicles and the heroes who drive them. People can view the attraction for free at Deaconess Gateway Hospital from 9 to noon, with the first hour siren-and-lights-free. S.M.I.L.E. will collect nonperishable food items to distribute to local food pantries.
