    If you missed it you missed a lovely, sunny day with lots of new friends· and many old, and our shop looking it's sparkling best. The sparkle was provided was provided by a jovial hard working crew, most of them you have seen on the "who done list" before. Vern Mc Cullough, Bill Walsh, Ida Claflin, Del Peterson, Roman and Viola Groves, Max Unland, Judge Ewing, Bill and Janice Garcia, Vic La Follette, Ron Hasemeyer, Lloyd Canfield, Al Richter, Dan Dineen, and Ednah Antunovich.

    We had a case depieting most of the things we do, and teach at our shop that looked good enough to put into a show. The workmanship was a group effort, Jewelry, carvings, faceting, minerals, silversmithing, channel jewelry, flat lapping. Vern Mc Cullough, Patti Gillespie, Ron Hasmeyer, Audrey Azevedo, Max Unland, Arnold Barron, Bill Walsh \Jic LA Follette, Valda Mc Thorn, Jim Bishop and I filled the case.

    Our demonstrators had crowds around them most of the time, and have gotten some new students to learn their crafts, Darlene Pasquini, with carving, JAmie Mc Donald with square wire jewelry, Ed Rigor with lost wax, Larry Osborn with slate carving, Aaron Bronneman, cabbing, Bill Reynold and Amy DeVoe with flat lapping, Fern Brown, Dan Dineen, Vic LaFollete and Al Richter with faceting.

    A special thankg goes to John Gullak for acquiring and cooking the hot dogs and their fixings. They sure were good, and of course our members provided the rest of our well known CUlSlne. The only thing left over was stuffed eggs!

    Thanks to all of you for helping make this a very happy occasion.

    Travel back in time 65 million years. Step into a world dominated by a giant, swaying Apatosurus or a growling fifteen foot tall Tyrannosaurus. Until May 31, Lawrence Hall of Science takes you back to the Mesozoic Era, through special exhibits, lectures, and films. This is a great event.

    While there Visit the work rooms, and have a cup of coffee in the cafeteria for the most breathtaking view of the bay I have ever seen. To make this a more enjoyable event take a child with you.

    I'll leave all additional information on the shop bul
