Donated Land Fulfills a Field of Dreams in Albemarle County

Luck Stone’s on-going engagement with Stone Robinson Elementary School, a neighbor of the Charlottesville plant, has created a new athletic field for the students and community. “I think that this field and our relationship with Stone Robinson illustrates what is possible when you really engage with the community and have a dialog about what can be accomplished together,” said Bob Grauer, president of Luck Stone. The project began as a discussion with the school about their need for more useable land. While it would be simple for the quarry to move its fill dirt to the school property to meet the school’s immediate need, more creative conversations developed even bigger dreams of what was possible.
