Gem show bigger this year

JOSHUA TREE — The 38th annual Gem, Mineral and Craft Show continues through Sunday. The show began Wednesday with the biggest opening day in many years. “We were very happy to have such a good start,” Roger Thompson, president of the Hi-Desert Rockhounds of the Morongo Basin, said.

Yes, it was bigger and better than last year. This was the second year that we teamed-up with the Sportsman's Club of Joshua Tree and their president Wayne Hamilton. We added more vendors and more visitors came to enjoy our show. It's our old fashioned desert way of giving back and supporting our local community as well as offering educational opportunities to all.
