Che-Hanna's Gem and Mineral Show
The 40th Annual Che-Hanna Rock and Mineral Club Inc. "Gem and Mineral Show" will be on Saturday, March 28th from 9am - 5pm and Sunday March 29th from 10am -5pm this year. It will be held the Athens Township Vol. Fire Hall, 150 Herrick Avenue, Sayre, PA. Click here for directions.
If any of you have not attended before, you just don't know what you are missing! Click here to view last year's posting and pictures from the event.
This year's event will have OUTSTANDING GEOLOGICAL EXHIBITS presented by Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Paleontological Research Institute. There will also be a silent auction of minerals from the Carnegie Museum, florescent mineral presentations, door prizes, fossil identification, gemstone faceting demonstrations, geode cutting, a kids mini-mine, cabochon making, and of course a fantastic display of Native American artifacts exhibited by SRAC!
But most impressive to me the first time that I attended this event was that filling the whole back area (huge and where they have wedding receptions, etc,) was an incredible amount of dealers offering minerals, fossils, lapidary, jewelry and hobby supplies. You won't believe your eyes!
Hope to see you there!
