Small car for small people gets big help from T.J.’s

I would like to thank the friendly team at T.J.’s Garage at the corner of Centre Street and Lakeville Road for donating their labor to repair the Brewer Street tot lot’s froggy car. The froggy car is a very popular conveyance at the tot lot, beloved by tots for its funny appearance and steering wheel and by parents for the fact that they can push it and walk upright.

The froggy car had already braved the elements and provided over a year of service to the toddlers of JP when its front wheels collapsed. When I asked T.J.’s if they would be willing to branch out to push-car repair, they welcomed the job, refused any sort of payment and fixed it the same day even though they seemed quite busy. Thank you!
