President’s Message – August 2020 (Click Here for More Info)

From the Top of the Rock Pile . . . . . . .

The bad news, again no meeting in August. Very sorry we have had to cancel our annual picnic at the Lake Wilderness Arboretum. I am so hopeful that in the near future we will be able to have a meeting.

I really miss seeing everyone.

Our monthly field trips are continuing. There nothing like getting our doors and collecting rocks. Our state is so beautiful and summer has arrived! Check our website and register for field trip reminders or new field trips. Also check out the Washington Mineral Council for their trips too.

Also check our our website for the latest Mini Miner’s by Diamond Dan for activities to keep our Young Tumbler’s busy. The June and July editions are now available. We thank Diamond Dan for providing the issues for free for our Young Tumblers.

The Puyallup club is holding a small 3-day outdoor show in August. You will find all the details elsewhere in this newsletter.

I guess that’s all the news. Mike has been busy tumbling, He always brings his latest polished rocks up to the kitchen to show me. I have been gardening. My small back patio is full of colorful flowers and a water fountain plus I am growing tomatoes and green beans. So far I have 9 tomatoes getting ripe and my beans are blossoming.

I hope everyone is staying healthy. Be sure to wear a face mask when going out as we all want to see each other again.

Presidents Message

  • From the Top of the Rock Pile …. by Kat Koch There will be no club meeting in November. I just read Gov. Inslee’s most recent memorandum and I really don’t think we are going to be able to hold any meetings for sometime yet. I know we are all anxious to see one another and engage in some good rock talk. Hopefully, that time isn’t too far off. In the meantime, as long as the weather holds up, please take advantage of our club field trips. Roger works so very hard to keep this monthly event going.
