General Meeting – March 14th

March’s meeting program is on rock displays.

We know all of us are rock hounds and have rocks everywhere. This is your chance to show off your hobby.

Merriann has requested that you send her photos of your display of rocks, minerals or fossils. It can be either indoor or outdoor rock displays, large or small. It can also be any lapidary project: a bowl, bolo-tie, lamp, clock, rock display, outdoor wall, rock pile, etc.

Please send Merriann the photos as soon as possible so she can create the March presentation on rock displays.

Please, if possible, include the name and type of rocks displayed or used.

You should have received an email on January 13th giving you her email address and text address. You can use either method to send her your pics.

If you didn’t receive the email go to our website and click on the “Contact Us” page. Send an email that you need Merriann’s info.

Show ‘n Tell: A rock, mineral, fossil or lapidary project you like to display in your home.
