The Heavy Equipment Club at Central Lakes College in Staples recently toured the Falkirk Coal Mine at Underwood, N.D., where the 25 students and adviser Mike Sams had a close look at giant excavation equipment.
Some of the CLC students may be operators and maintenance technicians on equipment such as this after earning degrees in Heavy Equipment Operation and Maintenance.
The program's fall celebration will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 21 at the West Campus, where featured speaker will be alumnus Brian Mathiowetz of Mathiowetz Construction Co.
