CFMS First Place (New Editor)
Our very own Beth Walls was presented the CFMS First Place award for New Editors by Wayne Mills. She works very hard and does an incredible job every month to put together the best newsletter out of all of the CFMS clubs.
Beth is also in the running for best new editor out of all of the AFMS clubs. The AFMS yearly meeting is coming up soon so we wish Beth good luck!
A few times a year the club gets out as a group to look at the local geology and collect minerals and fossils. Past field trips have been to locations for sharks’ teeth, fossil shells, jasper, agate, thunderers, etc. Other trips have been to museums or to look at geologic features on the San Andreas fault and at Estero Bluffs. Field trips are for club members only!
