We are indeed fortunate to have you in our community and enjoy your company at Museum events. With thoughtful friends such as you, we are expanding our mineral collection and plan to create an appropriate exhibit area for visitors to enjoy these gifts from nature. It is awe-inspiring to view such items knowing many of them have been in the making for thousands of years.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees and the Museum staff, we thank you.
