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 (or twice) 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!

Our first grab bag stuffing was a huge success. We filled 925 bags, a lot of new people there, and we had a good time filling bags, eating pizza and cake, and just socializing and getting to know each other.

We still need 575 bags to fulfill our expected needs for bags this year. We have gotten some new items and will easily have enough product to fill these bags.

Thanks to everyone who made bags and showed up at the clubhouse to fill the bags. Anyone wishing a pattern to sew bags, I have the directions and patterns made, it is also available on our GMS website under the Grab Bag heading (click here).

Hope to see you all there,
