Show-Me Rockhounds – show-off some of their activities and display specimens of rocks and minerals. Credit for the display and arrangement goes to Steve. He put together two very nice posters showing some club activities including wire wrapping, field trips and related photos of interest. One poster asks it you might be a rockhound. All specimens are from Steve’s and other members collections. What a great variety! Something for everyone. Photos by Connie Snow
