— Cleveland County youngsters got to explore more than 40 trucks of various kinds during the annual “Touch a Truck” at the Cleveland County fairgrounds.

Construction cranes, school buses, bucket trucks, a helicopter, police cruisers and ambulances were among the vehicles children got to sit in, pretend to drive or just touch on Saturday.

Proceeds will benefit the children's section of the Norman Public Library. Since its inception in 2004, “Touch a Truck” has raised more than $27,000 for furniture, toys and supplies.

The event is sponsored by MOMS Club of Norman, the city's oldest organization for at-home moms and their children.
