Fire truck pull benefits SOI

The 7th annual Fire Truck Pull to benefit Special Olympics athletes in southeastern Indiana will be Aug. 18 in Lawrenceburg on East High Street.

Teams of 15 or less will play the ultimate game of tug-of-war with the Lawrenceburg Fire Department’s largest truck. Each team raises a minimum of $500 to see who can pull the fire truck 50 feet in the shortest amount of time. The Fastest Pull Challenge trophy is one of several prizes at stake.

The Kiddie Pull, free to children 8 or younger, will kick things off at noon. The “Cruisin’ for Inclusion” Car Show returns for a second year. The Keith Swinney Band provides the evening's entertainment from 6-8 p.m. All events are free to spectators.
