A beige 1953 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup Truck featuring the Sunday Dispatch logo is the latest vehicle to be parked in the Dispatch Fleet garage. The die-cast truck will be awarded with numerous other giveaways at the 28th Annual Pittston Tomato Festival. The 3100 Pickup becomes the 10th vehicle and second truck in the Dispatch Fleet, joining the Sunday Dispatch Delivery Truck which was the first vehicle in the Dispatch Fleet.
Other vehicles in the fleet include, last year’s 1957 Corvette, an SD School Bus, a Volkswagon Beetle, a PT Cruiser, a Chevy SSR, a Mini Cooper, a Hummer Humvee, and a Volkswagon Microbus.
The ’53 Pickup can be won by using a Dispatch Dollar for a free spin on the big wheel at The Sunday Dispatch Booth (Booth #46) at the Tomato Festival. This year’s Dispatch Dollar can be found inside of this Sunday’s Sunday Dispatch. Patrons may also spin the wheel for a $1 donation to the Greater Pittston Food Pantry or the Care and Concern Health Clinic.
