The Che-Hanna Rock and Mineral Club recently announced the dates and new location for their 48th annual Mineral Show. The event will be held on March 25 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and March 26, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wysox Volunteer Fire Hall located at 111 Lake Rd. in Wysox, Pa.
The club members are very excited about the move. They will have more parking for your cars and more space for you to enjoy the minerals on display and for your purchase.
Club members will be demonstrating lapidary skills. Junior members will be operating the mini-mine. Children watch as a mine car brings treasures up from the mine for them. This is always a treat for the young.
Several club members will be exhibiting their personal mineral, fossil or lapidary collections. The Carnegie Museum will present an outstanding display and will be accompanied by Marc Wilson, section head of minerals.
UVBob will be presenting his outstanding and “glowing” fluorescent show several times. Club member Tom will be cutting geodes that you may purchase. You will be the first person to see what is inside.
A variety of dealers will be selling minerals, fossils, gems, lapidary and jewelry.
The Che-Hanna Rock & Mineral Club, Inc. was organized in 1962 in Sayre for the purpose of studying rock, mineral, fossil and shell specimens, and to develop skills in the lapidary arts. The club was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1976. The club holds membership in the Eastern Federation of Mineralogical and Lapidary Societies and the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
The club holds monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of each month from September through May (except December) at 7 p.m. in the Sayre High School cafeteria on Lockhart Street in Sayre, Pa. Picnics are held in the summer months. Visitors are always welcome.
