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

From the top of the rock pile .  .  .  .  . 

It seems the coronavirus has turned everyone’s world upside down. I know by now we all must be getting so bored and possibly lonely. I hope everyone has managed to find some toilet paper! Who ever knew it was such a precious commodity.

It’s a good opportunity for us to do some rock polishing or lapidary work that we have been putting off because of lack of time.

Remember you can also always write an article for the monthly Tumbler news bulletin. It can be about your hobby, an interesting rock or mineral fact or discovery, activity for our Young Tumblers, or a field trip report that you did with a group or on your own. If you feel your article needs proof reading Keith or I can do so for you. You can email your article to Keith Morgan’s (Tumbler Editor) email address which can be found in any issue of The Tumbler.

If all else fails reach out and call a friend or relative that you haven’t spoken to in a long time. It’s a great time to reconnect with friends and family via phone, texting or email. We are all in the same boat so we can all commiserate together.

The Board meeting and regular Thursday club meeting in April have been canceled. Hopefully we will all see each other in May.
