Odyssey School PTO

Touch-A-Truck event June 15

Odyssey Charter School PTO is hosting a Touch-A-Truck event to be held at Ashley Park Mall in Newnan on June 15 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. in the parking lot near Firehouse Subs.

This is a chance for kids to get up close to — and touch — all of their favorite vehicles like city and county police cars and fire trucks, construction trucks, tow trucks, street sweepers, a 70-ton crane truck from Georgia Rigging, vehicles from Atlanta Motor Speedway, Southern Scapes Landscaping, Joe Crain Oil, Peterbilt, and many more. 

The PTO has even got a replica of the Batmobile and the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine, organizers said. 

There will also be an American Red Cross blood drive during the event. Donors will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Lizard Thicket Gift Card. Sign up to donate at www.redcrossblood.org using sponsor code: Truck.

County, city and military vehicles are free to touch, admission for all others is $3 per person, or $2 with a non-perishable food item for the Coweta Community Food Pantry. Children 2 and under are admitted free. 

All proceeds will benefit the Odyssey School, a free public charter school for grades K-8 located in Newnan. For more information about Odyssey, go to www.odysseycharterschool.net.
