Peckham Industries participated in two fundraisers on Saturday, June 20, 2015. The crew from the Hudson Falls quarry sent a shiny Komatsu 325 haul truck to the Aviation Mall parking lot for a “Touch a Truck” event. It was sponsored by the NewYork State Motor Truck Association and monies were raised for the VA in Albany. Jim Strainer and Sue Coulter proudly displayed the truck for kids (and adults!) of all ages. He was joined by Jeff Farley of Churchhill Associates; Jeff brought the recently restored 1926 fire truck from North Creek. It was rebuilt with the help of Barton Mines of North River and is a great beauty.
Randy Hamilton from Peckham Road took his tri-axle Western Star tractor to another similar event in Greenwich. This was held to support the Greenwich area Food Pantry and was held in conjunction with the annual Whipple City Days celebration near our Middle Falls blacktop plant. Randy keeps his truck in immaculate condition, and PII employees are always proud to see it hauling oversize loads, as he shuttles the paving, milling and cold-in-place recycling equipment all over Eastern NY and VT.
