Volunteer Opportunity – Dozer Days

The ASCE geotechnical group would like to introduce you to a wonderful family and child friendly event – Dozer Days.
Check out their website
The event is a family event where children are given the opportunity to drive construction equipment. There are also booths where organizations can set up and encourage the parents and children to obtain education and training that would allow them to enter the civil construction/engineering field.

Washington State Fair & Events Center (Puyallup Fairgrounds), Puyallup, WA
Saturday and Sunday June 4th and 5th.

This seems like a great opportunity to volunteer a bit of your time, while also gaining a free/reduced price admission to a neat family event. If you are interested in volunteering for this event please email Mark Rohrbach at MARohrbach@haywardbaker.com. If there is sufficient interest – volunteer slots to staff a booth would be about 2 hours each.
