Inside this Issue


Please note A CLUB MEETING TIME CHANGE for the months of

January, February and March:

1:30PM – Second Saturday of those 3 Months only


The web version of this month's newsletter will be slightly different than the hard copy.


The CMC will meet Saturday, Feb. 8th at 1:30 PM at the Salvation Army Building on Clinton Street in Concord, NH.

Our guest speaker for the February meeting is Bill Brown. His topic will be Minerals of New England and Mineral Localities of New England.

The mineral of the month will be Minerals of New England. Anyone who would like to donate a mineral specimen to the club raffle please bring it with you.

Refreshments this month will be provided by Steffen Hermanns.

Last month we had a vote for the best story of the year, the results of this vote is mentioned in the secretary’s report. The club would like to thank all the writers that participated and help support our newsletter.

The writing contest will be an on-going competition, so if you have a story related to the field of mineralogy or similar interests please join in, our club members would love to see what others are up to.

The rules are simple:

Story must be written by a club member

Story must be self written

Story must somehow relate to the mineral hobby

Story should be at least one and no more than four typed pages
