President's Message

April is here! April is here! Warmer temperatures… the prospect of months of good outdoor rock hunting ahead of us…it’s just a splendid time of year – don’t you all agree?

First of all, special thanks to Debbie Steuart for pinch hitting for me in March. I did make it to the meeting late, but Debbie was able to fill in while I attended to family matters. There were several members from the Bluegrass Club in attendance for Bill Coffey’s meteorite presentation. So! glad they came. Plus, we had a rockhound all the way from Iowa visiting us that night. Jerry Parton brought a pile of geodes from his region of the country to share. These will make a great addition to our silent auction at the show this fall. There may also be some pieces for Kid’s Quarry. Jerry has since joined the club as a long distance member and we hope to see him back soon. Thanks Jerry for your generosity.

April will see a combined meeting of both clubs for our program presentation. The Bluegrass club’s monthly meeting would fall on Easter Sunday, so we will be happy to share for all those who can make it that evening. Thanks again Debbie for lining up a great program. I think April should be Debbie Stuart appreciation month for all that she does for the club. Be sure you tell her how great she is when you see her!

That’s all I have for this month. Hope to see you all April 17th at 7:00pm. Please don’t forget the opportunity to help out at the Mountain Mushroom Festival’s Gem & Mineral show in Irvine April 25th-27th. Organized agate hunting opportunity too so see mountainmushroomfestival.org for details..

Editor’s Comments

A True Rockhound

I wondered if any of you have a dog that does this. Our dog is named Mo (Mocha). She’s a pound puppy, part chocolate lab, part retriever (we think). Mo is a sweet dog but scared of just about everything. Mo loves rocks. She gets into my dump pile and finds a rock to her liking. Then she plays with it (throws it in the air and pounces on it), chews on it, sleeps with it and then leaves it in the yard. The next time she wants a rock she goes to the pile and gets a new one. Need-less to say, we have to be careful ―mo-ing‖ the lawn. She has also been known to steal rocks from my workshop.
