President’s Message:

During the field trip to Flint Mine Hill last month several people were interested in the different types of flint found at the site. Even though the site is covered with flint most of it is weathered and consists of lesser quality material which was left behind. Therefore this month’s program will be on flint types from Flint Mine Hill. Gary Sipila and Joe Mlcoch will discuss the various types, and members are encouraged to bring in projectile points and other artifacts which they think are made from Flint Mine Hill flint.
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting,
Congratulations Steph!
