Quarry Quest Digs Up Success

Posted on Nov 13, 2012 by Liz Blohm

Who knew playing in a quarry could be so much fun?! Those who attended last month’s Quarry Quest had a blast digging in the dirt, rocking out on rides, operating cool machines and learning about how a quarry works. Roughly 20,000 people passed through the gates of this year’s event, which was held September 15th at Michels Materials Quarry in Neenah, Wisconsin.

Proceeds from the event will go toward local children’s charities and the Quarry Quest Environmental Educational Fund, but money wasn’t the only contribution from the day. Benches that children built at the Carpentry Shop activity station will be used for seating areas at future Quarry Quest events, and dog houses, also built at the Carpentry Shop, were donated to local charities.

While most attendees went home with additional knowledge and fun-filled memories, three lucky event goers went home with the day’s top prizes. Jenny from Appleton won a diamond ring valued at $8,995 from Krieger Jewelers’ Wishful Diamond Dig benefitting Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wisconsin.  Julie from Neenah and Joe from Appleton each went home with a gift basket valued at $250 for being the selected entries in the Seek It and Treasure Trek activities. Both games were new to Quarry Quest this year and called on participants to locate coordinates and solve clues directing them to secret locations around the quarry and, in the case of Seek It, throughout the Fox Valley.

Thanks to all of the event coordinators, sponsors and volunteers who made the day possible! It’s takes a big effort to put on an event of this size and planning for next year’s Quarry Quest has already begun. Make sure to mark Saturday, September 14, 2013 down in your calendars and we’ll see you at the quarry!
