Bill and Nanno Rose like the idea  of lighting up the shaft, which we see so well from Houghton and which adds something to our our view of the outdoors and our geoheritage.   "Our children were born here and now we have five grandchildren to celebrate also.  We have proud geological roots here. We think the shaft should be bright on our birthdays, and this would be a good way to support geoheritage and the QMHA.  We hope other local families will consider doing this"



Opening Day for the 2014 Season is scheduled for May 2nd

(weather and snow removal pending)
