My First School and Floral Park’s Department of Public Works joined forces on Friday, May 16 to create another fun experience for the children of the town at the My First School Annual Truck Day. The children in their bright yellow school T-shirts had the wonderful opportunity to explore all the vehicles that help keep Floral Park safe and clean. They visited fire trucks, school buses, sanitation trucks and had the chance to ride a train around the parking lot of the Floral Park Recreation Center. Special thanks to the Floral Park Police Department for ensuring that the day was went safely for our children and families.
