The Riverside County Fair and Date Festival. February 12-21, 2010

It's always good to get together with the San Gorgonio Mineral & Gem Society at the County Fair. We had a very pleasurable and successful time. Our Shadow Mountain Gem & Mineral Society shared the duties and staffing of the demonstration area in the Gem & Mineral building. We cut geodes and sold our very ownfield trip collected and handmade educational rock bags. Our club dispensed more than 700 educational rock bags this year. Hundreds and hundreds of school kids came through for their Rocks and Geology lessons. Our thanks go out to the many schools for bringing the children to the Gem & Mineral building at the County Fair this year.
