Sunshine News

The Georgia Mineral Society is more than a club -- it is a family. When someone in the GMS family has good news or unfortunately, bad news, the rest of the club is there to congratulate or hold hands.

The Sunshine Chair gathers and reports club member news.

Frankie Burkes has been ill with an infection since early April. It began as an intestinal illness followed by a sinus infection. Frankie is slowly recovering and feeling more like her well self, daily. We wish you healing and good health, Frankie.

The celebration of the life of Margaret Ronan was held on May 3. Margaret was remembered by her neighbors, Georgia Mineral Society friends and her brother.

Happy Father’s Day!
President Lyndon Johnson issued a proclamation in 1966 declaring the third Sunday in June be set aside each year to honor fathers. In 1972, President Richard Nixon signed a law declaring Father’s Day be celebrated annually on the third Sunday in June. This year, Father’s Day is June 16.

We wish all fathers a very Happy Father’s Day.
