14th Annual Day of the Dozer Another Success!

August 26, 2017 at the McLean County Fairgrounds from 10:00am until 4pm, over 700 kids got the experience of a lifetime to ride heavy construction and farming equipment!

In its 14th year, more than 10,000 kids have attended this one of a kind event. The kids were able to be in the driver’s seat and actually operate dozers, excavators, and other heavy equipment with a professional operator at their side.

Day of the Dozer supports the GreatPlainesLifeFoundation; a local initiative designed to address the high school drop-out crisis, and help low income students that demonstrate the ability to succeed, yet are at risk for dropping out. This years event helped to raise approximately $20,000!

Mark your calendars for next years event on August 25, 2018!

Special thanks goes to Dave Stark, Stark operators, employees, and family members who volunteered, along with all of the community organizations who participated, making Day of the Dozer the most successful ever! A sincere thank you to Stark event coordinators, Chris Ryan, Karrie Hilt, and Amy Bowen
