Saturday, March 18 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The First Inaugural Gem & Mineral Show will be at the Richland County Fairgrounds, 211 W. Holly St., Sidney. Admission to the show is $3 for adults, kids 12 and under are free.

There will be several vendors at the show with many different items including, jewelry, gemstones, fossils, crystals & amethyst, rough rock & slabs, agates & geodes plus much more.

There will also be a Kids Corner which will have a "Wheel of Fortune, Gem Dig, Grab Bag and Garnet Picking.

Eddie White and Doug Copeland are the co-founders of the inaugural gem and mineral show in Sidney. With shows dotted all over the state, the two got together and had a discussion on how Sidney has been overlooked being one of the best stretches of river in the state for dendrite and colorful agates. That led to them organizing a show which they hope will go on for many years to come. A one day show this year can easily turn into a 2 day show next year depending on how well it all goes.

For more information call Doug Copeland, 406-480-0765 or Eddie White, 406-413-1136.
