The Toledo Gem and Rockhound Club celebrate its 53rd year. This resident artist club, located at The Toledo Botanical Garden, offers numerous opportunities for adults and students to explore and participate in all aspects of gem, mineral, and fossil collecting; metal crafting; beading; and jewelry making. If you’ve never seen rocks that glow fluorescent, created a copper bowl, discovered a 350 million year old trilobite, then you’re missing the fun!
The club will host its 43rd annual Jewelry, Gem, and Mineral Show & Sale September 5-7, 2014 at the Stranahan Theater Complex, 4645 Heatherdowns Blvd., Toledo, Ohio. Show hours are Friday, 2-8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Donation is $4 for adults and $3.50 for students and seniors over 55 with ID. Admission is free for scouts in uniform, active military with ID, and children under 12. The site is air conditioned and parking is free.
