The Nutter Foundation is actively recruiting volunteers for Dozer Day 2017. Dozer Day is a fun family event that allows kids to operate dump trucks, dozers, and excavators. Proceeds benefit a variety of community groups and organizations. This year’s event will be held Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21, at the Clark County Fairgrounds. Volunteers are needed to operate equipment (experienced, professional operators only), work with equipment operators to help children on and off machinery, monitor lines, and assist with check-in, ticket taking, etc. To ensure the safety of children attending Dozer Day, all volunteers will be pre-screened through the Washington State Patrol background check system in advance.
