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.

Summertime and, hopefully, the living is easy. School is out for children. Time for picnics, family reunions, and fun in the sun. For us rockhounds it may offer more time and opportunities to pursue our special interests... Go west to central Oregon for Rockhound Pow Wows in June and early July in Central Georgia. Prineville Rockhound Pow Wow is very popular. These powwows offer field trips for thunder eggs, petrified wood, and agate; rock vendors; auctions as well as entertainment. Be sure to check out the bulletin boards. Years ago Dan and I found an estate sale of a rockhound listed. A yard and shed filled with petrified wood collected over decades sold for 69 cents per pound! [Read the rest of the sunshine message in the July Tips and Trips newsletter]
