New Hampshire Club Display
The Sunapee show is almost here and we have need to get ready a Club display.

  The theme for this year is self collected minerals from 1996 and 2000 (5 years).  If you have a mineral you are willing to display bring it to the September  meeting. 
The Club year end displays should be a good guideline on the specimens needed for a Club display.  Also think of minerals collected at Club outings, family collecting or group collecting at particular location etc., as an added twist to the display.  We need specimens so dig them out.   
If you can't make the meeting or have questions or want to make other
arrangements give me a call,  Gordon Jackson 783-4493.

Sunapee Show
Volunteers Needed

CMC's annual show at Sunapee will be here before you know it.  As always, volunteers are needed to help make this years show as successful as past shows, if not more so.  Please contact John McCrory if you can help out. Phone: (603) 796-2152,
