Fox Valley employees lend a hand at 2014 Quarry Quest

Our employees in the Fox Valley recently volunteered at Quarry Quest in Neenah.

Quarry Quest is an annual event to raise awareness about the construction and mining industries. The Sept. 13 event also raised money for local charities.

We Energies employees gave kids a hands-on experience about what it’s like to work in the utility industry. Kids geared up and climbed a miniature utility pole, learned how to assemble a gas meter and how to string wire.
