March 2017 President’s Notes

Rockhounds

Spring and March are on the doorstep. Schools’ Spring Break offers chances to hit the road and rock hunt.

One opportunity is to travel the Llano & Burnet county roads. One can find various rock layers which contain interesting rocks/minerals. If you see something interesting, stop and look. Be mindful that you don’t cross and property lines/ fences. Llano has a rock shop on the Square which has Texan rocks and minerals. Mason has an ‘antique/collectible’ shop just off the Square. They have several Mason County Topaz including some with the classic BLUE color. You might even find one of the granite cutting shops opened. They might let you observe the processes.

Regarding the AGMS’ news, we are still looking for some members to fill vacant Chairs. I will speak to these positions at the General meeting; for example the Field Trip Chair & Building/Property Chair. I plan to have a tasks listing to help clarify what is expected. Some of these positions and expectations can be found in the Bylaws & Operating Procedures. You can access these on the Web Page.

And remember, if you go on a trip please share with us during the Show & Tell portion of the General Meeting. See you then.
