Giving Back to the Community

We believe giving back to the community is a very important aspect of our business. Repeat business is a result of not only good quality work but having made great relationships with our clients. Some of those relationships have made us aware of community needs and allowed us the opportunity to aid in the cause. It’s a great privilege to be able to enhance the lives of our community and surrounding area.

Kids Rock Program

Gary Wood of the Linn Creek Quarry wanted to offer local school children the opportunity to learn about quarries, how the rock can be used, etc. and created the Kids Rock Program. The program has around 500 kids visiting over a few months’ time, throughout the year. They are bussed over, given their safety green Capital t-shirts, a hard hat, and a Capital bag to collect their treasure that Gary has placed in a designated area for their visit. The first call to order is learning about safety and he then proceeds to explain some of the purposes and processes of the quarries. Gary and his wife have even gone as far as to make Rice Krispie treats, but it’s not just a treat. It, too, is a lesson in teaching the children how asphalt is made. He describes the Rice Krispies as the rock and the butter as the asphalt oil. When combined, you have your product! Each year, Gary and others take time out of their busy schedules to make a memorable and educational event for the kids. Thank you, Gary!
