Cascade Elementary School

Bob and Jackie Pattie and Bill Cook visited the Third Grade classes on April 25, 2012 to make a presentation on the Geology of Washington State. This is the fourth year that we have gone to the Cascade Elementary School in Renton and this year we had two sessions for about 130 students. After the discussion of the geology of the state they had an opportunity to ask question and handle many samples of Washington State specimens. After many questions the students were able to pick a small piece of Petrified Wood to take home. The following are some pictures of this year’s trip to the Cascade Elementary School.

Presidents Message

  • From the top of the rock pile .  .  .  .  .  It seems the coronavirus has turned everyone’s world upside down. I know by now we all must be getting so bored and possibly lonely. I hope everyone has managed to find some toilet paper! Who ever knew it was such a precious commodity. It’s a good opportunity for us to do some rock polishing or lapidary work that we have been putting off because of lack of time. Remember you can also always write an article for the monthly Tumbler news bulletin. It can be about your hobby,
