Our Speaker of the Month was Tom Moss who told us about his travels afar with his father and some of the great finds while on his trip.  Check them out on our Finds of the Month for July!


September 1st, Joann and Skipper Dunn are putting on a hunt for wounded warriors.  They are asking for donations to help fray the cost of food and for volunteers with extra detectors to use with the wounded warriors.  This is for a great cause for our veterans that have given so much for their country and our freedom.  Please see or talk to Joann about what you can do.  


We will be having a Surf and Turf hunt at Lake Gladewater on August 25th, 2018.  Keep checking under Upcoming Events for a flyer in the future.

MONTHLY FUN FACT...

Butterflies taste with their feet.

WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?...

CURFEW
The word "curfew" comes from the French phrase "couvre-feu", which means "cover the fire". It was used to describe the time of blowing out all lamps and candles. It was later adopted into Middle English as “curfeu" which later became the modern "curfew". In the early American colonies homes had no real fireplaces so a fire was built in the center of the room. In order to make sure a fire did not get out of control during the night it was required that, by an agreed upon time, all fires would be covered with a clay pot called-a “curfew".
