Petrified Wood
Welcome Friends and Future Rockhounds

       The Ginkgo Mineral Society was formed in 1949 by a like-minded group of friends.

       They:
            - enjoyed spending time outdoors.
            - appreciated the majesty of nature.
            - liked collecting, cutting, and polishing rocks.

       These are the primary reasons the club still exists today.

        Meeting are (were) held monthly for sharing stories of rockhounding adventures,
          for displaying the latest finds and projects, and for enjoying each others fellowship.

        As the world pandemic plays out, meetings will eventually be scheduled regularly again.
Special Notice: The Club will meet July 16 - Friday evening at 7 pm - at the Presbyterian Church at 200 S. Kentucky in East Wenatchee.
 This is our first regular meeting in over 15 months so bring stories to share!
