 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 Terry Crowell and Annette Comeau.

 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 tenth 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 afternoon. A nice selection of  “rockhound” specimens were swapped.

CMC members in attendance thank Scott Higgins for his help in organizing the event.
