It is with deep regret that I announce the passing of one of our longtime members, Ronnie Hearn. I will post more information about his service once we learn the details. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

Our March meeting had 22 present. We scheduled a members only hunt at Skipper and Joann Dunn's land on April 11th at 10AM. The hunt will be for silver halves but in a unique way. There will be silver dimes buried and also pennies with numbers stamped on them. You have to get a total of 21 points worth of pennies and you can turn them in for a silver half. The hunt will have an entry fee of $21 per person.

Our speaker of the month was our very own Tim Lester. Tim discussed the current laws involving the metal detecting hobby as it relates to trespass and whether you are entitled to keep your finds. He did a lot of work on the handout and was very thorough.  

For over two decades we treasure clubs have been supporting an activity of teaching children with disabilities the fun hobby of treasure hunting with a metal detector. Every year they are so excited to see us on our annual visit to the Texas Lions Camp for Children with Disabilities. We not only teach the children how to use the detectors but we also teach their counselors so that after our visit they can continue to do that activity with the other campers that visit the Camp. These Children are our future and it is an honor to teach them the activity that so many of us enjoy.

When Nolan Underwood (activity director of the Camp—now deceased) and I had no idea that this activity would be a defining feature of the Camp in that the foreign Counselors of that Camp in all our visits would take this activity to their home such alike camps and introduce it there. Now it can be said, that what was started here in Texas at this camp has gone “Around The World” and has introduced hundreds and maybe thousands of children with disabilities an activity that they can enjoy.

As the children, We Are Blessed with so many supporting this activity over the years, too many to mention here. However, you know who you are, and Nolan and I want to tell you how Sincerely Thankful We Are for that support. Yet we must ask for HELP again, PLEASE!

What makes this possible is your support. Our annual visit this year is scheduled “June 3rd & 4th 2020” starting at 8:00 AM to prepare for the many kids we will see for both days. We are in desperate need of “Foreign Coins” that we hide for the kids and they get to take home, plus the many little toy cars and sports cards bundles for prizes. Please try to help us this year; coins shops usually sell foreign coins by the pound fairly cheap. We need them not only for our annual visit, but also for those that visit the Camp after that year. Also, if you wish to help with the children, you are welcome to come.

I will be at the Texas Treasure Show in Bryan, TX. on March 13th thru 15th, 2020 at Brazos Convention Center and I will have a bucket there for donations of foreign coins if you or your club wish to drop them off, (please put your name and town or club name in with the coins you donate.

I will also be at the Charles Garrett Memorial Hunt on March 27th thru 29th, 2020, in Canton, TX. again with a bucket for your donations of foreign coins. Please put your name or club name and where you are from in with the coins. Thank you all for the wonderful support.

When the first oil wells were drilled, they had made no provision for storing the liquid so they used water barrels. That is why, to this day, we speak of barrels of oil rather than gallons.
