Dick has been a long-time member and fixture of the club. He served as treasurer for many years. He was always active at the club show and could often be found on field trips.
He will be greatly missed by all.
Meeting will be on Thursday, Feb 15, at 7:30 PM.
(And, no, this does not mean an extension for paying dues – if you can’t make the February meeting you can still mail it in.)
The meeting will be Thursday, Jan 18, at 7:30 PM.
The January presentation will be given by Phil Bradley of the NC geological Survey. Phil has spoken tour club before, and was warmly received. His topic will be, “The Geology of Haw River” (the HAW River is a 110 mile long tributary of the Cape Fear River in Central North Carolina).]]>
Thought I would share a little information about local Forsyth County geology that I have been investigating for many years as an archaeology enthusiast. Many prehistoric rock quarries existed in the now Forsyth County and Yadkin County areas that I have studied. The quarry efforts by early Prehistoric people impacted these geological environments extensively but clues have been left that identify the geological events that supplied rock materials used for stone tools and components. Hope you can identify this as a positive scientific effort in a geo archaeological nature. I have max amounts of data and artifacts on this subject.
