December Presentation

Highlights of ETGS activities during 2004 will be presented with a collage of photographs provided by various members. We had one field trip this year to the Fall Creek Falls State Park area. We will also summarize ETGS support of this year&rsquos Earth Science Fair at the University of Tennessee. If you have photos from any of these events, please send them electronically to Mark Gardiner no later than December 2. If you have other photos that might be of interest to our geologist membership (from vacations, field trips, conferences, etc.), please send those to Mark as well. He will compile them into an informal presentation that will be one of the highlights of the December meeting.

December Challenge

We encourage you to bring a friend or co-worker who is not already active with ETGS. This is a great opportunity to introduce folks to our organization and help our professional membership grow. Dinner will be catered by Gondolier Italian Restaurant and will be provided in exchange for a small donation of $3 to $5 per person to help cover expenses. As is tradition at our December meeting, your family is welcome. Please RSVP if you plan to attend, with the total number in your party. The RSVP will allow us to order enough food for everyone. Send your reply by email to Seaira Stephenson.
