Truckers decorate for Haven Society

The Mid Island Truck and Equipment Association hosts the sixth annual MITE Show and Glow fundraiser.

Big rigs and heavy-duty construction equipment take on a softer glow Nov. 26 as the Mid Island Truck and Equipment Association hosts the sixth annual MITE Show and Glow fundraiser.

Association members are decorating and lighting up their trucks and equipment from 7-9 p.m. at the Mid Island Co-op Bowen Road parking lot.

The light competition is open to anyone working in the local heavy construction and transportation industry who would like to participate by decorating their trucks and/or construction equipment with lights and compete for prizes.

Refreshments are available courtesy of the Co-op in exchange for a donation of a new unwrapped toy, non-perishable food donation or a cash donation for Haven Society.

For more information, please e-mail info@midislandtruckandequipment.com.

The Mid Island Truck and Equipment Association is comprised of almost 70 members of the local heavy construction and transportation industry.
