February 14, 2024 Meeting <3

Today we held the very first (of many) junior rockhound programs at 6:15 pm before the general meeting! Kim led with an intro to quartz. The kids got to keep specimens in their newly gifted rock boxes. This may have been the very first meeting, but a good number of families showed up. All the kids said they wanted to come back!

After junior rockhounds ended, the general meeting began at 7 pm. A lot of new people attended.

Silent auction at SLO Gem and Mineral club

The silent auction had great stuff and the raffle prizes (if you attend, you get a ticket) were excellent. Then we heard about the huge (250 vendors) Pow Wow show in Quartzite, Arizona from Jeff. This was followed by show and tell. Lots of specimens were given away!
