Our 2019 Western Mass Mineral, Jewelry & Fossil Show was one of our best shows ever!
We had pretty good weather for the show, tho setup day was a bit damp, cold and windy.
It took many club members helping to make it a great show, and it was a great show, both for our club and for the dealers.
The place was pretty crowded both days, with Saturday being the busiest of the 2 days. We could have used a few more hands helping out, but the staffers that were there put in an extra effort to make it all happen. A BIG Thanks goes out to all of you for the help!
Another big thanks goes out to the UMass students running the Mineral ID table both days! There were many people that showed up with minerals and rocks to be identified, a few came with bags of rocks.
I saw more than a few children that were amazed with seeing their minerals being identified under the microscope and getting a chance to see them enlarged thru the scope.
The mineral displays were another big hit with the crowds.
