Cleaning minerals donated to the club

On a bright Sunday afternoon in September, Helen Rodak, Fred Wilda, Teresa Greenwood and myself, Wayne Corwin got together to clean a collection of rocks given to the club.

These donated collections are cleaned up, sorted out and either bagged to be used for free samples to kids at our show, put out as door prizes at the meetings, put up as raffle prizes at the meetings or sold at our club auctions. Some rocks end up being for education, some rocks are to raise money for the club. Almost all donated rocks, minerals or fossils need to be cleaned and sorted and it's a good time to hang out for an afternoon, sort and clean up some cool rocks and have a chance to chat, mostly about the rocks.
