Rock show draws hounds to county fairplex
About 1,100 people attend Tualatin Valley Rock and Gem Club event
Membership chairwoman Dorothy Snook of Cornelius was positively giddy Monday morning about the number of new devotees added to the Tualatin Valley Rock and Gem Clubs rolls over the weekend.
TVRGC picked up 20 members during the March 8 and 9 rock and gem show at the Washington County Fairplex in Hillsboro, she said.
I noticed a lot of young dads bringing their kids by, noted Snook, who, along with her husband Russell, has been part of TVRGC for 30 years. Theyre all excited they all want to go on field trips.
Close to 1,100 people paid admission to the rock and gem show, in addition to a lot of club members, said Snook, adding that the event was better attended than usual.
Russell Snook does lapidary work for club members, while Dorothy wraps rocks she finds in wire and makes them into jewelry, she said.
