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, Jan. 11th at 1:30 PM at the Salvation Army Building on Clinton Street in Concord, NH.

Our guest speaker for the January meeting is Ted Johnson. His topic will be Mineral Collecting in Southern California.

The mineral of the month will be Minerals from Southern California.

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 Howard and Bea Hewing.

As usual, the CMC annual Christmas Party was a wonderful time for all who attended. A pot luck feast, including, ham, turkey and all the holiday trimmings, was a treat.

The seventh annual Best Field Collecting and Best Lapidary Contests were held. Winners are posted on page 2.

We also enjoyed a Yankee Swap towards the end of the evening. A nice selection of "rockhound" specimens were swapped.

CMC members in attendance thank Gordon Jackson for his help in organizing the event.
