Gem Show 2019 Success

We would like to thank all who made this show a wonderful success! This includes our volunteers, advertising supporters, friendly dealers, Dick Pugh from the Cascade Meteorite Laboratory and of course our visitors.

We hope that the community had a good time, found some wonderful treasures and had a chance to learn or discover something new about our amazing world of gems, rocks, minerals, meteorites and fossils. Our volunteers were very dedicated and hard working. We had a little advertising help from Oregonlive, Katu and Forest Grove News Times. All the 3 day Raffle prize winners have been contacted. Each of our displays had something unique to show and I am sure the votes where broad so thank you to all that voted on the displays as well.

Members and friends

A most memorable time was had by all at our annual Holiday Dinner. This Dinner was the last meeting until we start again with our next meeting on January 10th.

We had the best tasting food (loved that Turkey)! A wonderful Violin musician filled the air with her beautiful music. We adored the detail that went into the beautiful decorations. We enjoyed seeing our dear friends receive their awards! Our friends also had the most incredible luck winning raffle prizes and more raffle prizes, after more raffle prizes (how did they manage that?)

Congratulations went out as awards went to Bill and Linda Harvey, as well as Glen Woodward and Chris Weaver. They are all wonderful volunteers!
