HOUSTON GEM & MINERAL SOCIETY NEWS

PMNS Curator, Board Chairman and General Counsel, Terrell William "Terry" Proctor, J.D., has been elected as the 2008 President of the Houston Gem & Mineral Society (HGMS).

The eyes of Rock Hounds and Earth Scientists will be on Houston this Fall. September 26-28, 2008, HGMS will have their annual Show at the Humble Civic Center. This year HGMS is hosting the South Central Federation of Mineral Societies (SCFMS) and the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies (AFMS) at the HGMS Annual Show. . Your PMNS will again have a case of fossils and minerals in the Show. Usually we have 5 or 6 cases, but because this is a national show this year, HGMS is limiting all displayed in the number of cases available.
