Last week was our 12th annual Field Trip for Skyview Middle School students and we had a great time hosting them! By Thursday over 300 sixth graders from our local middle school have traveled through the P.J. Quarry and Plant here in Lunenburg to learn all about our Aggregates and Asphalt production. Can you believe we’ve been hosting bus tours for Skyview students for 12 years?
A big thank you to Dave, Kendra, Cody and our Interns Camden, Grace, Anna and Kaleigh for being great tour guides, and the students and teachers from Skyview for asking so many questions! Students learned about what types of rocks are in our Lunenburg Quarry, all the different measurements of stone we carry and waved to the truckers getting loaded with Asphalt.
It’s a highlight of the year for PJK, we’re looking forward to continuing the tradition!
Here we see Environmental, Health & Safety Manager Kendra and Quarry Manager Cody explain to students how high each bench of the Quarry is. (It’s 50 feet – if you were curious too!)
Dave Normandin had all eyes on him when he told the students we were blasting that day. We promise we’ll wait until the bus leaves the quarry!
Students were enthralled by our stone piles, giant trucks and crusher!
