Contributing to the community is an important team function at Aquila. We value our good relations with area citizens and businesses. It is through our core belief that being an active participant in the community allows us to share in the responsibilities for the community's well-being.
We are grateful for the many opportunities to interact with the public, keep stakeholders informed and share the exciting, positive growth afforded to all. Additional community involvements Aquila is honored to be a part of include:
- Sponsoring of a Lake Township community drinking water well survey. At the special request of Township officials, in response to the concerns of local residents about the current quality of drinking water around the Back Forty Project site, an independent environmental consulting firm was contracted to perform a year-long study of residential water quality.
- Upkeep of a boat landing on the Menominee River to provide enjoyment and ease of access to area fishermen
- Annual scholarship program that will reward graduating high school seniors intending to further their education
- Purchase livestock to support the efforts of area youth through regional 4-H Clubs
- Employee-wide recycling program
- Project tours
- Monthly open houses
- Conduct school and club presentations to provide education about geology and exploration in our world.
- Donate financially to local causes and organizations such as the Senior Center, Carney Round-Up Rodeo, and Salvation Army's Adopt-A-Family Program
- Member of the Marinette Menominee Area Chamber of Commerce
We don't just measure our success in terms of exploration and discovery, but also in terms of how successful our efforts are toward contributing to the growth and stability of the area we call home.
