Comment: Hello!
My daughter participated in your class for Science Olympiad for several years. It was a wonderful program she really enjoyed. I run a day camp for BSA and this year the theme “rock and roll” a mix of music and geology! There are nine camps that run from June to August. I’m looking for people who may be interested in volunteering to help a day at camp, and/or low cost options for rock collections. Please contact me on Facebook or at scoutymom.hotmail.com
Thank you so much! Melissa Hahn

The March Rock Swap is fast approaching. We need a few people to help. With what you ask? For starters we need to inventory the club items in storage at Inland. We need to make a list of what is on each pallet and if needed to sort the items. Volunteers are needed to pick up rocks and other items the Friday before the swap, taking same to and from the swap. Also some people to tend the club tables at the swap. In so doing you have a chance to walk around and look at all the wonderful materials others have displayed that are up for sale or swap. So if you are tired of sitting in the house all day and want to get out give us a call. There are two tel #’s below or email us. Loading up for the swap on Friday March 27 and delivery and setup on Sat March 28 at 8:30am.
