Gold Prospecting Demonstration
September 21, 2002
by Ken Barker

      On Saturday, September 21, 2002, the Gold Prospectors of the Rockies spent the day giving gold prospecting demonstrations for the 7th Annual Adams County Historical Society's Family History Day. The event was held at the Adams County Museum Complex at 9601 Henderson Road in Brighton, Colorado.
      Keith and Jean Cook were our hosts. They helped us get set up and provided us with a pancake breakfast.
      Keith asked us to take some time and visit the other presentations. There were some really great areas to see, too. Some of the members churned butter and others made apple juice, just to give you a little idea of what was going on.
      I recommend your seeing the next Family History Day, if you're interested in this type of history. Everyone had a great time at this event and we were happy to have been asked to be a part of it.
      I want to thank all the club members, the Conell Family, Ed Finney, Wayne Hale, and the Mostellers, who took the time to help out at this event and to let everyone know that we will be invited back for future events.
