Every year, the City of Waterloo Public Works Service Centre has an open house. This year's event was today, and my boys and I made the short trip to the centre this morning. It's an amazing event at which kids can ride in a swing shovel or front-end loader and dig gravel, take a trip in a dump truck, go up high in the bucket of a hydro truck from Waterloo North Hydro, or explore a fire truck. There's much more too. Add a few hot dogs for lunch and our morning was perfect.
From what I understand, the staff all volunteer their time to be there, and everyone seems to have fun. I've been taking my kids for years and I enjoy it immensely. Thanks to all of you who make this event happen — your effort and commitment makes living and working in Waterloo that much more fun.
