Custer Elementary Presentation by Dick Morgan

Thursday May 23, 2013, Pat and I went to Custer Elementary School to give a presentation to the second grade classes on

could show all sides of the rock. It was a lot of fun and the students seemed to have enjoyed the talk and the question and answer
time.
