A Note from the President’s Desk . . .
I can’t believe summer has arrived. Our picnic is Sunday, August 11th at Lake Wilderness Arboretum, Maple Valley. Setup is 11 a.m. with potluck picnic lunch at 12 noon. We will have an auction following lunch. So mark your calendars now and plan on attending. The kids can use their “Rock Bucks” to buy any auction item. There will be no General Meeting in August.
Jacquie Pattie provided refreshments for our meetings for 25 years. She retired in December 2017. It’s hard to thank her enough for such dedication to our club. Since Jacquie’s retirement, Angie Bayer has been making sure we have drinks and snacks at our meetings. Thank you Angie. Rich Russell’s wife, Jennifer, and Angie also regularly bake goodies for our meetings. I would like to give a big thank you as they are always delicious!
Just a reminder that we need rocks, minerals and fossils for the silent auction at our upcoming Gem Show in September. If you go rockhounding please remember to pickup a bucket or so of extra stuff to donate to our club. Right now the auction supply looks a little bleak so please remember to gather some extra.
I would like to acknowledge and say thank you to Glen and Joan of Jerry’s Rock and Gem Shop, Kent and Herbert Shepard of World’s Fossils and Minerals for being an unwavering supporters of our club. It’s is much appreciated.
Kat Koch, President
