General Meeting CANCELED – Thursday, January 11th @ 7 pm

MEETING CANCELED DUE TO WEATHER!!

Topic: Large Animal Fossils of Washington state.

Do you know what type of fossils you can find in Washington and what they most likely looked like when they lived? We all have seen or heard of the sea creatures, insects, and plant fossils that can be found in Washington. Tonight we are going to take a look at the larger land animals that have been found in our state.

This meeting will be a PowerPoint presentation by Kat. You will be surprised by the types of fossils that can be found right here in our home state. We will display several fossils, including a baby Columbian Mammoth tooth found right here in Washington. This tooth is in the club’s permanent collection.

Show ‘n Tell: Fossils you have in your collection. The fossil can be from anywhere in the world. Be prepared to tell us about it.

It is held during spring break so our Young Tumblers and their friends can attend without worrying about school the next day. Each member is asked to bring 3 wrapped items for each person who intends to play Bingo. You can play up to 3 games in person, and every person goes home a winner. Please try to donate an item you would like to receive, not junk slabs and rocks. Let’s all plan to have a fun evening together. Guests are welcome, and we encourage our Young Tumblers to bring their friends. Food Drive – We are collecting food for the Kent Food again. Try to donate 1 item or more for every person playing Bingo.
