There was plenty of both last weekend at Touch-A-Truck at Green Hill Park, where kids got a chance to clamber over all manner of vehicles.
And we have plenty of photos, too. You’ll find some in this week’s print edition of So Salem — and then more, actually a lot more right here online. We’ve got four different photo galleries from the event. Here’s a link to get you started.
Those aren’t the only online extras we have, of course. Here’s an easy guide to the rest:
* Photos from Salem After Five
* Photo of Fellowship Community Church campers
* Photos from Vacation Bible School at First United Methodist Church
* More photos about the long-lost class ring found at Roanoke College
* Another photo of the Chitwoods at the Salem Fair
* More photos from Laura Tucker at the Salem Fair
* More photos from Lemonaid
AND IN SPORTS . . .
* Salem’s state tennis champs honored
* Photos of Richard Morgan being named Bluefield College coach
* More photos from the All Comers meet at Roanoke College
* More photos of the Scrappers softball team
* More photos of the Dixie Boys All Stars
