Tilcon Celebrates Earth Day with local students
On April 28th 2015, TIlcon celebrated Earth Day Event with students and staff from Catherine A. Dwyer school in Rockaway Township.
The students decorated their own personal rock planters and enjoyed a visit from special guest Rizzo's Reptiles, who brought many of his reptile friends with him. The students got to learn about and hold a python among other fascinating animals.
Hats off to Tilcon New Jersey Scalehouse operator Chrissy Bishop who volunteered to hold the python with the students and to our very own singing star, Mount Hope Plant Manager Arnold Connolly, who composed and performed an original song, Earth Day, specially for the visit.
Arnold also gave an interesting and fun presentation about the quarry, teaching the children about the history of the quarry, the geology of the land and explaining how crushed rock is produced and what kinds of equipment are used on site.
Thanks to all Tilcon employees who took part in the this fun, annual event!
