This will be the busiest weekend of the summer here; it is the 53rd annual Gem-Fest.

At the end of the day yesterday we made a quick visit to the displays.
The show utilizes the skating rink and the curling club ................
with more vendors outside. Fortunately the weather forecast is for a hot dry weekend.

Mary didn't really have sufficient time to view all the displays as there are thousands of rocks from all over the world on display.

Here Connie and Mary discuss a polished stone with one of the vendors.

If you are into "rocks" then you need to visit Bancroft this weekend.

More information is available by clicking HERE.

Enjoy the show and thanks for stopping by.

  1. I have never seen so many stones. Can you use them to make jewelry?
    I've been seeing my doctor for the past month for severe abdominal pain that goes into my back. I've had blood tests and a ultra sound. I have fatty liver disease but my doctor wants me to have a CT scan and an upper GI series because she suspects it is more than fatty liver. The pain is not constant but comes in random attacks. Please pray for me.
