This is a note of local interest to our readers in the Modesto region...
The Geology and Anthropology Clubs at Modesto Junior College invite you to an evening of thrills, chills, and death-defying action, and that's just the Silent Fossil and Mineral Auction! Beautiful examples of geodes, petrified wood, dinosaur bone, fossils, crystals and rare minerals will be offered for purchase. Proceeds will go towards scholarships for students in the field studies program in Geology and Anthropology at Modesto Junior College.
The auction will be followed by a special showing of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, the classic 1981 adventure produced by George Lucas and directed by Stephen Spielberg, starring Harrison Ford and Karen Allen. If you have never seen Raiders of the Lost Ark on the big screen, you've been missing out. The State Theatre is one of Modesto's treasures, and it is a marvelous venue for watching classic movies.
The students of the geology and anthropology programs at Modesto Junior College have been working hard to assist their fellow students to attend the Summer Field Studies trip to Canada and the Pacific Northwest this summer, and this is their biggest fundraising event of the year. Come out for a great time, and come home with a treasure of your own!
