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.
