Our next meeting will be Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at 7:00 PM in the dining room of the Bristol Senior/Community Center, 240 Stafford Ave., in Bristol. We will begin with a short business meeting, followed by refreshments and socializing, and then the program.
The program for the evening is a presentation by club member Judy Schuster on Yogo Gulch Sapphires. These naturally bright blue sapphires from central Montana are among the finest in the world. Almost all sapphires mined today have to be heat treated, but these come out of the ground as blue as the Montana sky. The Yogo’s geology and gemology are just as intriguing as the late 19th century adventurers and fortune seekers who mined them. Hear some of their stories and learn what is happening now. Photos of her trips to the Yogo dike and underground mine will enhance your appreciation of these magnificent gems.
Hope to see you there!
