The children love the sifter. They can't wait to find the polished stones and rocks hidden in the sand. Mike helps the children identify what they have found.
John's display was called "Wisconsin Mining." This is a very important state topic and it got a lot of attention.
On display was a tooth from a mastodon found on a Wisconsin farm in the mid 1960's by Mary Rettler. It is now on display at the Horicon DNR Visitor and Education Center.
It was good to see Bernice McCloskey at the KMGS 2015 picnic. She is one of the club's founding members.
Nixon Park in Hartland provided a perfect setting for our picnic.
We brought items to share with the members, like the rebuilt matching game by Tony Ilecki to be used at our show in March 2016.
We ate and discussed...
Richard Rosenberger, his wife, Carolynne and daughter, Christy, went to Cave of the Mounds in August, 2015. The grounds were beautiful for a hike or a picnic.
Our group was glad to get into the cool cave on a hot summer day.
We saw Soda Straw Stalactites.
