Well, the Mini-Haulers have enjoyed the off season, but now we are back and all revved up to go! We have already participated in the Lawrence Easter parade, the Arlington Patriot’s Day Parade and Scituate Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. The streets were filled with families cheering us on! It was a beautiful sunny but cool spring day. By the time we reached the end of the parade, the temperature had dropped drastically and the wind was ripping across the harbor! With the parades starting earlier each year, we should install heaters in the rigs!
The calendar is filling up quickly with a good number of parades so far! You can look for us in Somerville, Wilmington, Natick, Marlborough, Northborough, Roslindale, Boston North End, Woburn, North Andover and Andover! I’m sure there will be a couple more too! As always, if you happen to get a couple of pics of us in action, please don’t hesitate to upload them to our Facebook page!
We are always on the lookout for some additional truck memorabilia to adorn the unit room. If you have an idea or an item that is “truck appropriate” that you would like to donate, please let any one of the guys in the unit know, and we will make the necessary arrangements to pick it up.
The Mini-Haulers are continuing to grow in popularity, and interest in the group has been steadily increasing. If you want to try driving one, get in touch with any of the members and they can make arrangements for a test drive; but I have to warn you, they can be addictive! One drive and you’ll be hooked! If you would like to be a part of the group or if you would like more information,please contact:
