Presidents Corner (June, 2021)

Greetings friends,

Happy summer solstice to you all – and happy re-opening of California!  I hope you have been able to enjoy some quality time with family and friends.  It has been so nice to see and hug loved ones again and take part in celebrations … and my “dance card” is quickly filling up! With everything opening, we hope to have our first in-person meeting in September and I can’t wait to see you all.

Once again, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of our members! Thank you so very much to our new Corporate Sponsors – your support and generous donations are needed to keep offering free membership to students and reduced prices for our annual field trip and monthly meetings.  We have recently updated our website to include our Corporate Sponsors on the home page as well as under a separate link.  Please consider supporting our non-profit organization by joining as a member or becoming a sponsor! 

Please save the date for our annual field trip – October 8 through 10, 2021 in the San Jacinto Mountains and surrounding foothills and fault zones.  We are working on the road log and guidebook, actively tracking down caterers and have some exciting stops and field trip leaders lined up to share their research with you.  More details to follow soon!

Please join us for our next meeting, which will be held at a special time – 5:30 pm on Monday July 5 – although it is a holiday for most of us, I’m sure you won’t want to miss our speaker, Dr. Jingmai O’Connor, coming to us through the internet all the way from the Field Museum in Chicago, home of SUE the T-Rex – if you haven’t met her, I highly recommend a visit next time you are in the Windy City!  

Have a safe and fun Independence Day and we hope to see you online the day after the crazy night of fireworks.
