On June 29, Arapahoe County Public Works and Development put on a program for children to learn about what the folks in that department do to keep the county running. Public works staff brought out a huge truck used to drop ice-melting materials and pick up snow, a front-end loader, plastic swimming pools filled with sand and toy trucks, road signs, stuffed animals ready to be “chipped,” and wooden blocks depicting city buildings, trees, and police officers and firefighters, to 6954 S. Lima Street. That’s the location south of Arapahoe Road, east of Peoria, where both Arapahoe County and the State of Colorado share Department of Motor Vehicle offices, so the public can get both a drivers’ license (with an appointment) and license plates renewed at the same time.
Daniel Sanders and his pals Rowan and Riley Park of Centennial took turns pretending to operate the front-end loaders.
Landon and big brother Erik Rogers of Littleton liked the front-end loader.
Cecilia Bliton and dad Mark of Centennial were building a fire station.
Sophia Garcia of Parker was excited to be the driver of the big dump truck.
What child doesn’t like to play in the sand with a toy truck?
