Our purpose is to promote interest and education in earth sciences namely geology, mineralogy, pale-ontology, the lapidary arts and related subjects. We also support promoting and ensuring the right of amateur hobby collecting, recreational rock hunting and the use of public and private lands for educational and recreational purposes related to the earth sciences.
Welcome back and a Happy New Year to all of our members, old and new. I thought our Christmas Potluck went very well considering my goof on the date with the church. I would like to thank everyone who helped out on set up, clean up and everything in between! I drew a gift that day which was for someone who had already left and no one seems to remember who the winner was. If you know you won and didn't receive your gift, would you please get in touch with me.
I attended the Hellgate Christmas Potluck as well where I met some new folks. I would like to share some new ideas with our members at the next meeting that was discussed there.
Our club is a great place to learn and grow with gems and minerals but it's also about fun. With everyone's help, we will make this year a fun filled exciting year. I hope you'll join me.
