Experience granite heritage at Quarry Park Public demonstration of derrick The public will have the rare opportunityto see the 100-year old wooden Liberty Derrick at work at Quarry Park and Nature Preserve on Saturday, lune t5. The derrick will be put into operation as part of Waite Park's Spas Tag Festival. Derricks were the main equip- ment used by granite companies from about 1900 to 1950 for lift- ing huge blocks of granite from the quarries. Now Stearns County Parks will operate the Liberty Der- rick to demonstrate the process to the public. A four-ton block of granite will be hoisted from the quarry floor at 1, 2, and 3 p.ra. on Saturday, June 15. Excellent iew- ing locations will be the observa- tion areas along Quarries 17 and 18, and just south of the parking lot. In addition to the derrick oper- ation, visitors will be able to see interpretive displays, view the operation shack and talk to staff about quarrying. Parking at Quarry Park will be free that day. The Stearns County Parks Department acquired the Liberty Derrick in 1996. After painstak- ing restoration work that began in 2005, and thousands of dollars in donations, the derrick was fully restored in 2008. Today the der- rick is operated once a year; how- ever, visitors can view the derrick exhibit anytime Quarry Park is open. A seven-minute video on the "History of the Liberty Derrick, Lifting the Past into the Future" can be viewed on the Stearns County website at co.stearns. ii!iiii!ii NOWI 7Daysa Week: Overall,,Ra00ng. :, .................. ::::::?????????:?????::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :.::ii:: i!!!iiiii :::; i! i :::::: i::i:::: Rehabilitation Therapy Adult Day Care , Hospice Care Respite Care Blood Pressure Screening :Occupational, Rehabilitation. iii!i!i!i!ili!!iiiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiii!ili!iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiil i!i)i!ii:iii  i,!i'  i DEADLINE: 2 p.m. Mondays EV-W softball team Section 5A Champs!
