Earth Day In Yucca Valley

posted May 2, 2018, 10:39 AM by Hi-Desert Rockhounds

We met so many nice people who love rocks at the Earth Day Festival in Yucca Valley. The children especially liked talking about rocks and seeing the collection that was on display. We hope that the parents can bring them to our monthly meetings.

The club has a New Facebook Page!

Yes, the Hi-Desert Rockhounds now has a Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/HiDesertRockhounds/ 
Congratulations! This Facebook page is a wonderful thing. I’ve been waiting for this. A Facebook page is interactive, allowing a two-way flow of information. It’s not Static like a billboard or the old website that was nothing more than a Blog. Blogs and billboards are one-way, one direction, informative but non-interactive, like an old fashioned picture book. This new Facebook page can be more inclusive and current. It's a good change for the club and should improve communications between club members and the community.

How good it was to see everyone. Due to the fog or bad weather we didn't have a full house this year, but 27 hungry & happy folks did. The decorations were wonderful and so was the food. Everyone enjoyed the gift exchange and all had a great time.
