Gem Show 2019 Success

We would like to thank all who made this show a wonderful success! This includes our volunteers, advertising supporters, friendly dealers, Dick Pugh from the Cascade Meteorite Laboratory and of course our visitors.

We hope that the community had a good time, found some wonderful treasures and had a chance to learn or discover something new about our amazing world of gems, rocks, minerals, meteorites and fossils. Our volunteers were very dedicated and hard working. We had a little advertising help from Oregonlive, Katu and Forest Grove News Times. All the 3 day Raffle prize winners have been contacted. Each of our displays had something unique to show and I am sure the votes where broad so thank you to all that voted on the displays as well.
