REAC Members Back At It Again!

We are Back at the Quincy Mine & Hoist Once Again!

On Saturday, October 17th, 13 REAC student members met up at the Quincy Mine and Hoist once again to organize a large pile of wooden cross ties and lay some more track next to the old Quincy Mine round house. The cog rail line at Quincy will be in need of maintenance soon, so members also did a brief inspection of the rail line at the mine. This will allow the REAC club to plan for future volunteering events. Everybody had a great time so be on the look out for the next volunteering event at Quincy or Lake Linden!
