Industry News - Quarry Quest Benefits Community


Neenah, Wisconsin-based Michels Materials limestone quarry held its 15th annual Quarry Quest in September, which raised $130,000 to benefit charities. More than 16,000 folks of all ages attended the event, participating in activities such as boom lift rides, treasure hunts, brick-and-mortar wall construction, and mining for pyrite.

Monies raised will be distributed to children's charities and to the Quarry Quest Environmental Fund, which awards grants for supplies, activities and field trips to help students learn about earth science, geology and construction.
