STAFFORD - The Stafford Chamber of Commerce under the leadership of President Steve Rizzo released a statement on early Wednesday afternoon about the wildly popular Touch A Truck event held each April at the Manahawkin Lake Park.

The statement reads:

"Due to the current concerns surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), after much deliberation, and with an abundance of caution, we, the Executive Board of the Stafford Chamber of Commerce, have chosen to CANCEL this year's Touch A Truck event.

The health and safety of the children and families in our community is of the utmost importance, and while this cancellation is disappointing, it was not a decision we came to lightly, but one we feel is the best course of action given the current circumstances.
We appreciate all your support and thank you for your understanding of this decision."
