42nd annual Gem and Mineral Show this weekend

March 4, 2011

t's the club's only fund-raiser of the year but considering the Big Spring Prospector's Club Gem and Mineral Show is in its 42nd season, it must be a successful one.

“It enables us to pay the utilities, purchase new saw blades or grinding wheels, make repairs, things like that. The money we raise at the show keeps us going,” explains Barbara Carter, the club's vice president. “It's a lot of work, but it's worth it.”

Set this weekend at the Howard County Fair Barn, the show will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 10 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free and a snack bar will be available.
