Attending our March 2018 was twenty seven members and one visitor.  Although our meeting was running a little late, Michael Heim spoke about ways to get permission to hunt.  We always appreciate our President volunteering to speak to the club.  It is always informative and helpful information.   Don't forget coming up is the big Garrett hunt in Jefferson and shortly after that is the TAMDC convention in Temple, Texas.  Both promise to be great events.

The weather is starting to warm up so we are looking for the club participation to perk up as well as the finds of the month will get better and better.  It's always exciting to see what people bring in.  You never know what you'll see month to month.  Congratulations to the Finds of the Months winners and keep it up!

Also, our President, Michael Heim, does a great job with our monthly newsletter, the Leaver-rite news.  Check it out under the, "Our Newsletter" tab.  You can keep up with all the latest happenings and upcoming events there as well.  

One of our members, Mary Hurlburt, was told by the neighbors' daughter and college student, Chloe Pipkin, that she had lost her precious grandmother's ring.  Her grandmother had just passed away last year and she had been given the ring by her mother.  The ring had great sentimental value to her and she was very distraught about having lost it.  Mary came to the rescue with her AT PRO and was successful in finding her precious ring after about twenty minutes of searching.  Way to go Mary and congratulations to Chloe!

Steamboats carried both people and animals. Since pigs smelled so bad they would be washed before being put on board. The mud and other filth that was washed off was considered useless “hog wash".
