About 600 guests and Maumee community members attended The Shelly Company’s Stoneco Maumee Open House on August 17, 2019. One goal of the open house is to educate the public about limestone quarries and Shelly operations. Guests took a bus tour of the quarry, cracked geodes, adopted pet rocks and visited a geology station. Other activities included a “touch a truck” display of quarry equipment and a “Guess how many tons?” game that invited visitors to guess how many tons of limestone Maumee quarry sold in 2018. A cookout-style lunch of hamburgers, hotdogs, beans, chips and cookies was served.
Thank you to all of the volunteers who made this successful event possible! We are also grateful to State Representative Michael Sheehy and Maumee Chief of Police, David Tullis, for taking time to stop in and say hello. The Maumee quarry crew is looking forward to another fun event next year.
