May Meeting and Club Field Trip

It is time for our May club meeting this Thursday the 16th at 7:00PM. at the
Community Reformed Church
1421 West Galena Ave.
Freeport IL. 61032
This month we have Ralph Taylor to speak to us about growing up in the Hamilton/Keokuk area
and finding Geodes. To go along with our field trip to Hamilton on Saturday the 18th he is going to bring some maps of places we can go look for geodes for free.
  We have placed an ad in a couple of papers to invite the public so bring some of your favorite geodes for show and tell for everyone to see.

For the field trip on Sat. we will plan to meet at the Wild Cat Springs Park in Hamilton Sat. morning at 9:00AM.
HWY 136 goes east- west through Hamilton,  the park is north of the HWY you have to watch for the sign for where to turn.
Drive down to the stream and park in the parking area. You are allowed to collect geodes in the park so we can practice 'til we are ready to leave.  Cell phone # to call if you need help finding us.
