September Meeting Photos Several people from the Panama City Gem & Mineral Society met up with members from our local club for a “dig” at Arnie & JoAn’s house. The Lamberts invited both clubs to root around their yard and collect treasures. There were more rocks than any of us could carry. After giving away tons of rocks, they fed us too. We had beautiful weather & a great time.
