Breaking Ground-New Building Site Development

This past weekend, many of the Upper Midwest A-C Club™ members got together to play in the dirt. Just kidding, these guys and gals worked very hard to complete all the necessary ground preparation before construction starts on the new building sometime in 2022.

A video created by Jim Pessek @ J & L Videos can be viewed below to show the hard work of club members over the weekend.

Take a sneak peak at these photos to see this crew in action:
