I would like to thank all that came out to the January meeting. We had 15 members there, it was short but a nice meeting.
I hope everybody comes out and supports the club, we have one of the best clubs in the state.
We talked about just having our Steak Fry Dinner (without crafts). We can make our crafts at home or buy some for our wheel. Think about it. Thatís what we used to do and everybody enjoyed the dinner better.
I hope this finds everyone well and happy.
Good Luck Always

Henry Chavez has reserved the pavilion in settlement canyon for our steak fry, we have it reserved for August 14th and 15th the steak fry will be on the 15th. Henry found out that we could have storage at the senior citizens center, so Don Smith procured a storage cabinet and lock, and made a stencil for it, we will use it to store our library books and other things as necessary. Mat Hitesman said he would like to be considered for the job of making our fabric signs. Ruth brought to our attention that we need to pay our rent for this year. Arnold West won the door prize.

Letter From The Editor:
I see I had a problem on the address labels last month. There were several labels listed as (02) when they should have been (03). I went though and compared the roster & I think I have fixed everything. I donít think I have received the list of people that paid their dues at the Christmas party yet (hint hint). If there is anymore problems see page 2 on how to contact me (Dennis Chapman).
I am going to be on the road the last week and a half of February. This will be interesting how I can get the paper out on time, so if Iím late sorry. I was wondering if there is one of the members with email, acrobat reader & a printer? All you would have to do is print it out & mail it to the person that does the copying. The size of the files would be between 1/3 to 1 meg. If I have to I will take my printer, but I donít know how easy it would be to get to a post office. If you can help, email me at ---------.
In Memory of Mildred Davis:
One our old Rockhounds members past away recently. Her & her husband where members for many years.
Mildred Davis passed away, Saturday January 11, 2003, Mildred and her husband John (Roy) were long time members of the Tooele Gem and Mineral club. Our hearts go out to her family.
Is Rockhounding Genetics?
Truth is stranger than Fiction. Here is a series of emails I received. We start comparing genealogy the day before.

She belonged to the Bellevue Rock Club in the 60's and we have always collected rocks, for three generations now (my nephew on one vacation loaded his father's car up with so many rocks they could barely get home). Maybe that runs in the family from your side?????
Dennis wrote: LOL!!!! Maybe it does runs in the family!!!! My dad got sick of me bring home BIG rock (I could hardly carry them) & he decided if I was going to bring home rock I was going to bring home good rock, so we joined Wasatch Gem & Mineral. He really liked cutting & polishing rocks & I liked silversmithing so we made a good match. Later Tooele Gem & Mineral needed an editor & liked computers so I became their editor. Now I'm editor, Vise Prez & Webmaster, and what ever else they can volunteer me for ;-)
Katherine wrote: Well, see. Rocks, my mother had a small rock tumbler, my sister has it now. I used to design jewelry and now work in the publishing/prepress field! Genetics at work!
