President’s Message – September 2020

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

It’s hard for me to write this again: No meeting in September. If Governor Inslee changes things we will surely have a meeting. So check the website, call or text me for updates. My info is in the contact page of The Tumbler newsletter. You can also email me at president@cascademineralogicalsociety.org

Our monthly field trips are continuing. As our summer wanes and we move towards fall please take advantage of our field trips. As long as we continue to have good weather Roger plans to have monthly field trips. You can find details on our club field trip for September in this newsletter or on our website. The website also has Roger’s planned future trips.

Angie and Bryan have been kind enough to store a lot of stuff for the club. Angie has informed me that she has buckets and buckets of local carnelian and rough rock for tumbling. If you are interested in any of it for your own use and/or to tumble for our show next year please contact Angie. If you want to tumble for the show next year the club will provide the grit. Her info is on the contact page of our newsletter under “Refreshments.”

I have been trying to think of ways to keep our club in contact with one another. Roger Danneman has come up with a great idea. He has started a Youtube channel for our club, Cascade Mineralogical Society. He has posted two videos on our club field trips. Do a search for our club name. Be sure to subscribe, then click on the little bell and chose all notifications, then click share the video. When a new video is posted you will be notified.

I hope everyone is staying healthy. Be sure to take good care of yourselves and wear a face mask when going out. I know we are all looking forward to seeing another again.
