The McPherson Gem and Mineral Club will hold its regularly scheduled monthly meeting 3 p.m.  Feb. 9 at the McPherson Senior Center, 112 E. Euclid Ave. in McPherson.


Come and join the club for refreshments and fellowship as they learn about fossils, minerals, rocks, lapidary and all areas of earth science.


The February meeting will feature a  presentation by Jim Barda, Mine Foreman for Hutchinson Salt Co. Barda will describe current mining practices and information regarding the operation of the underground salt mine in Hutchinson. This should be a great program.


There will also be information on upcoming club field trips.
