The September meeting of the CMC will meet Saturday, September 10th, at 7:30 PM  at the Salvation Army Building on Clinton Street in Concord, NH.


The Club would like to thank Gyan Bhatnager for speaking about the minerals and gemstones of the pegmatites and Deccan Traps of India  at the May club meeting.  Our speaker for the September meeting is Steffen Hermanns and he will be doing a presentation on Eden Mills.  Mineral of the month will be Minerals of Eden Mills.


Refreshments will be provided by Anna & Bob Wilken.


Volunteers are still needed for our annual Gem and Mineral Festival at Mt. Sunapee.  Please contact Charles Forsberg, Chairman, at 603-927-4955 to help with this event.  Efforts are truly appreciated!  See more info on page 3.


The regular October Club meeting will be the Saturday following the Sunapee show.  It will be on the 15th, so mark your calendars.
