The Rock, Fossil, Gem and Mineral Show was a Success!

The Northwest Illinois Rock Club 2012 Show was a great success thanks to the hard work of all of the vendors, the VietNow Veterans brat stand, guest speakers and club members.

(Thanks again to our Veterans who served us yet again on Veteran's Day)

This show wouldn't have been possible if the many people in our communities didn't come together to celebrate all that the Earth has to share with us.

Participating Vendors:                              
Craig Heinze,
Starlite Art and Framing
Brushy Creek Gems & Minerals
Betty J. or Gerald L. Navone
Wrap-N-Rock Gems
Rock Biz
Julie Whitlatch
Jack L. Hoxie/Mystic Moraine
Craig Moore


Some of our CLUB MEMBERS


We would also like to thank our guest speakers:
Steve Simpson, HCC Geology Instructor
Aaron Laurent, HCC Alumnus and Beloit College student
Scott Williams, Collections Manager, Burpee Museum of Natural History, Rockford, IL
Nate White, HCC alumnus and Augustana College Geology student 
 Fred Mrozak, Astronomer and telescope craftsman  

Thank You for helping make our show a learning vehicle.
 This show is annually held every November, and then the Badger Rock Club of Monroe has theirs in March at the Monroe Highschool, where you can
                                                                                     see many of the same happy faces!
