A special event offered by S.A.L.T. each year is the Senior’s Auto Inspection. This annual October event helps our seniors better prepare their cars for winter. This year 79 volunteers consisting of mechanics, High School youth service league, Boy Scouts, police officers, Milton Township Board members, SALT Council, local service representatives and others made this year a great success. Through the combined efforts of these volunteers, we were able to service a record of 118 cars! Tire pressures were checked and filled, engine fluids were checked and filled and all batteries were tested. Each senior received a 40 point inspection report!

Check upcoming issues of The S.A.L.T. Communicator for this event in 2024!
