From the President:
Be sure to come to the 17th annual gem show at the Findlay Toyota Center in Prescott Valley August 6th, 7th, and 8th. Click on the SHOW tab for more information.
The annual meeting of the RMFMS/AMFMS was well attended and the show was very busy in spite of the remote location of Big Piney, Wyoming. We have a lot to look forward to as a Club: childrens’ and young adult activities and teaching, ways to improve our knowledge and contacts, and support from the parent organizations just to name a very few. Bob Boyd and I will present a program in October filling in the Club about our adventures rockhounding and learning (lots of good pictures!). Below is the Club’s Display case at the gem show in Big Piney.
