2010 Thank-Yous

The annual list of those deserving special recognition for contributions to Rocks & Minerals has grown steadily through the years, as has our appreciation. Just as important as our faithful readership and advertisers is this loyal network composed of those who provide financial support and volunteer their time and services.

In 2010, donors to the Color Fund contributed toward color in all six issues of the magazine; organizations provided subscription table space at symposia and gem and mineral shows; volunteers worked shifts, managed subscription tables at events not attended by the editor, and helped with the tremendous workload of putting on two silent auctions; transporters delivered boxes of magazines to workers at shows; others provided space to store back issues and supplies in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, and even Germany until next year's events; the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society sponsored a benefit auction for the magazine at its February show, as did the Greater Denver Area Gem and Mineral Council at its September show; and a volunteer ran two online auctions to benefit the Color Fund. Our thanks to one and all.
