Annual Rock Auction & Picnic
Our annual picnic and auction will be on June 14th at Hyde Park in St. Joseph, MO at 7:00pm. There will be a large collection of rocks for sale that was donated to the club by the family of Vera Sproat. Dick and Vera Sproat were active members of the club for many years and they had a lot of rocks that they acquired during their many years of collecting. Some of the rocks that will be auctioned off include, many jaspers from out west, plume and dendritic agates, petrified and agatized wood, geodes, obsidian, lake superior agates, several boxes of slabs and many other rocks too numerous to mention. This auction will be open to the public and all proceeds will benefit the club. Please come early to register for a bidder number prior to the auction.
