First established in 1959, the Cody 59ers Rock Club helps to promote sharing knowledge of rocks, minerals, fossils and gems through field trips, educational speakers and group interaction.
Together, we discover our local geology and share knowledge of the lapidary techniques that are required to enhance the appearances of our discoveries, which we use for purposes such as jewelry and general display.
The Cody 59ers at the Hobby Fair
Park County Library April 22 & 23
The Cody 59ers Rock Club took advantage of a "Hobby Fair" held at the Park County Library in Cody to share our interests with the general public. Members brought collections, specimens, lapidary and jewelry items, as well as, rock enthusiasm to the event on April 22nd and 23rd. Adult visitors to the library were greeted by our members who shared information about rocks and membership. A large selection of polished stones was available for youngsters to search through and select their "perfect" specimens. Our club is thankful for the opportunity given us by the Cody Library to share with our neighbors the educational and recreational activities 59ers provide. The Hobby Fair was an enjoyable family friendly event that we hope will be continued. Our club also extends its gratitude to the staff at the library that coordinated and made this community outreach program an enjoyable success.
