Grab Bag

Grab bags -- those little bags filled with rocks, fossil, and minerals -- fun for kids and fun for adults!

Some members donate cloth, time, and their sewing skills to make the bags.

Other members collect goodies all year during field trips as well as their own collecting adventures and donate them to be used in these educational little bags.

Then, once a year, we get together to stuff those bags!

So help make kids (and adults!) happy by making bags, providing goodies for the bags, or filling the bags!

Grab Bag Message

Date: Sunday, April 2, 2017
Time: 12:00 pm
Location: GMS Building

Time to fill the grab bags for this year's show. To make this an opportunity for everyone to participate I will be setting up from 11:00 to 12:00. We will start filling bags between 12:30 and 1:00.

I want to say thank to everyone who collected rocks on field trips and everyone who collected extra rocks for the club on personal field trips. I have so much gratitude for all those who have used their time to sew the bags we will fill.

Lastly, it is not too late to donate your extra rocks or donate bags. Just bring them with you Sunday April 2, 2017! When we are finished GMS will provide lunch and fellowship.
