County Fair Display
The El Dorado Mineral and
Gem Society's participation in the annual county fair
includes displaying minerals, lapidary, jewelry work,
and educational exhibits. We coordinate the exhibit setup and provide
hosts and hostesses for the Mining & Minerals Displays in the Organ Room
Our society hosts over
case displays including worldwide minerals,
lapidary, jewelry, self-collected specimens, fossils and
artifacts. We also
exhibit photos and samples of rocks and minerals collected on
our many field trips. Mining maps, photos, mineral posters and
material are all part of the display.
|Visiting us at the Fair is a great opportunity to learn about our
society and meet its members. We are happy to explain more about
the hobby and activities that you can attend. Both children and
adults enjoy getting our grab bags
year to year.
Donations from the grab bags go toward our Education and Scholarship Programs.
and noncompetitive entries are available. Entries are
open to the general public, and membership in the club is not
required in order to enter or compete.
