The 13th annual Big Trucks event is scheduled from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 1. This year's event will be taking place at a new location, the Saunders Quarry on Limeledge Road in Marcellus. Saunders volunteered to host the annual benefit for the Skaneateles Nursery School and the Marcellus Parent Nursery School.
Saunders is the oldest family-owned concrete and aggregate producer in central New York, and has been operating since 1891. The Marcellus location has been recognized in the past for its involvement in the community, receiving the highest award from the National Aggregates Association for Excellence in Community Education with regards to a major reclamation project in 1996. Saunders again stepped forward to help the community when it heard the Big Trucks event was looking for a new home.
This event was a perfect fit for Saunders. Big Trucks allows children and adults of all ages to explore, up close, the size, power and workings of over 40 big trucks, heavy equipment and emergency vehicles. In addition, those attending will get to view the event from the quarry floor, a new experience for even veteran Big Trucks attendees.
