Rocks to Gems

The Surrey Rockhound Club hosts its annual show and sale this weekend at Sullivan Hall.

Check out rocks, minerals crystals and fossils. The Rocks to Gems show will also feature demonstrations, dealers, displays and much more, from door prizes to kids stuff.

The two-day event (Oct. 15-16) runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days at Sulivan Hall, 6302 152 Street.

The Surrey Rockhound Club has been around for more than 50 years. The club teaches lapidary arts (stone cutting, polishing, faceting, sculpture and scrimshaw), plus silversmithing, and wire wrapping.

The club hosts educational visits by school kids, youth groups and adults.

Members also work toward creating greater awareness of lapidary arts by hosting display shows.

The Surrey Rockhounds meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month at St. Luke Parish Hall, 10177 148 Street in Surrey.
