Celebrating Canada Through our Rocks and Minerals
Our 39th annual Rock and Gem Show and Sale titled, "150 Rocks – Celebrating Canada Through our Rocks and Minerals", took place October 28th and 29th 2017 from 10am to 5pm both days at Kyle Centre in Port Moody.
Canada celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2017, and our club, its 50th anniversary. To recognize this special year, we hosted a display of 150 Canadian rocks, fossils, and minerals important to our country, its people, and the world. The list of 150 rocks and accompanying stories and photographs were captured in a laminated brochure and made available free of charge to show guests, thanks to a grant from the Canadian Geological Foundation.
