Inside this issue:

The CMC will meet Saturday April 14th at the Salvation Army Building on Clinton Street in Concord, NH at 7:30 PM (Please note that club is back to evening meetings starting this month).

Tom Pantages will be the guest speaker and will talk about mineral photography.  The club members are encouraged to bring in their mineral/gem photographs to show to the other members.
We will also be forming a nominating committee for the selection of club officers.  Anyone who is interested in being on the committee please let Jon  Herndon know.
Rules for the Masthead Contest will be discussed and then published in the May issue of Crystals and Cabs.
John McCrory will supply refreshments.

This is a reminder that the May meeting of the CMC will be held on the first Saturday, May 5th instead of the second, this is to accommodate the Maine Mineral Symposium.
