Cape Sandy, Tower and Temple Quarries were very busy this fall hosting tours for a variety of School and Head Start Groups. North Crawford County Head Start, a group consisting of 34 children and 38 staff and parents, visited Temple Quarry back in October for look at our operations, Sand Art and Lunch. The children, ages 3-5, commented that Mulzer Crushed Stone had the best field trip they had ever been on! That says it all!
South Perry Head Start visited Cape Sandy shortly after with a smaller group, however the children and their parents were very impressed with the huge equipment they were allowed to climb. The children, staff and parents were treated to lunch and Pet Rocks at the Fredonia Community Center as part of their annual visit.
Delaware Elementary School 1st grade classes, located in Evansville, made a very special trip to Cape Sandy in early October. A large portion of these students had never traveled outside of Evansville, let alone visited a working Limestone Quarry! The students were amazed from start to finish and were thrilled to get to climb a huge pile of rocks and sit in the driver’s seat of one of our Quarry dump trucks.
Castle North Middle School 7th grade classes visited Tower Quarry at the end of October. This large group of 122 seventh graders was split into 4 groups and visited stations during their visit. Steve Speedy spoke to the students about the Quarry Operations. Brian Peters was on hand to speak about Safety and Environmental Issues. Bob Lingerfelt spoke to the students about Geology related topics and Natalie Maasberg and Brad Brown spoke to the students about our equipment and the company history.
