My mom, dad, and sister took my nephew Evan to Dozer Day in Vancouver, WA today. There were about 75 different dozers, back hoes, etc that the kids could ‘help’ operate. As www.djcoregon.com describes it: “The Nutter Foundation will put kids in the driver’s seat of bulldozers, dump trucks and other heavy construction equipment this month as part of its annual Dozer Day fundraiser. Dozer Day, which benefits the Clark County Parks Foundation, allows children to ride on construction equipment next to a professional operator. Event organizers are looking for several hundred volunteers to aid in operating the heavy equipment, unloading and reloading kids, monitoring lines and drive times, and helping with various other event activities.” Source: http://www.djcoregon.com/
The event will be held on May 16 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Fisher’s Quarry, 19201 S.E. 34th St., in Vancouver, Wash.
