Mineral ShowsBethel, Maine show

6th Jun 2014 18:56 BSTken briggs (2)

The Oxford County Mineral & Gem Association will host our 53rd annual show this year on July 12-13 at Telstar High School on Route 26 in Bethel, Maine. We have had our display cases refurbished and this year they will be filled with spectacular materiel, thanks to Garry Freeman, Geff Morrison, Frank Perham, Carton Holt, the Maine Mineral Museum and others. It ought to be worth the drive just to see these cases.

We will feature at least 16 dealers, kid's activities, a really good silent auction, food, field trips to the Bennett Quarry and Mt. Mica and a lot of other stuff.

Admission is $3 if over 12. Kids get in free. This show funds two local scholarships as well as club activities.

We now have about 130 members and are growing every month. There are still 15 or so field trips left, so we are busy.

I am glad to hear about the change in location and that the display cases have been refurbished. Always a nice club show with good field trips.

If you get a chance, check out the mineral displays at the show. They are even better than hoped for. And the weather is cooperating. So come to Bethel and enjoy the sights. Until today I had never seen blue fluorite from New Hampshire.
