General Meeting – Thursday, September 8, 2022 (Click Here For More Information)

 

Topic: A recap on how our Cascade Gem and Mineral Show went. Financial analysis and a critique of the show. What went great, and where do we need to improve next year.

Then we are going to try something new. A sticky note timeline chart.

We are going to have a yearly timeline chart from 1935 to 2022. We are going to ask you to put 3 sticky notes on the timeline with your name on each and then

1st Note first time you went rockhounding and your age

2nd Note the most memorable rock hobby event in your life and your age

3rd Note another memorable rock hobby event in your life and your age

Then place each of your sticky notes on the timeline.

Just before Show ‘N Tell, we will take a look at the chart. Then during Show ‘N Tell you can come up and look at the chart and discuss it with each other.

Show’N Tell: A rock, mineral, or fossil that means a lot to you.
