Many thanks to the members who helped out at last Friday's Westgate Elementary Science Fair.  Here's a review from Emily M:

Hi, folks. Here are a few pics from Friday's Westgate Elementary school science fair. 

Layton H. had many students and adults impressed with our junior member's outstanding rock and fossil collection. Howard's bug collection was a huge hit, with his many specimens of butterflies, moths, spiders and beetles, as well as his collection tools and mountings in process. It was a busy two hours, but it went quickly! Howard's coprolite got the expected response/squeals, and the shiny lure of pyrite were sure hits with the kids. That's the way it goes when rockhounds get to share favorite collecting locations, and to talk about the interesting finds in our displays.  

Flyers were picked up for both upcoming August sale and the November show. There were nice compliments from previous visitors on our shows, and there was a lot of interest expressed from others to visit as we talked of our club collecting trips and our active lapidary shop.
