Northwest IL Rock Club is now on Facebook!

 Hi All,

Just wanted to let you know that those of you on Facebook can now 'like' our club page and keep up to date on the goings on in the club.  I will also be sharing photo's 
of rocks, fossils, minerals, and crystals from other rock-hounding pages, and you are free to post too!  Let's all be involved, and all share the minerals we are interested in.  Take a photo of your favorite stone, or fossil, or ask what it may be if you don't know- some one might know.  
Everyone has a voice here, let's share...and learn

Even if you are not on Facebook, you can still check in and see what's happening!

If anyone in the club is interested in becoming an extra administrator on the page let me know.  You really don't have to do anything.

Thanks, and see you on the 16th at  Bethany United Church of Christ 2341 W. Stephenson in Freeport Il
