Hello everyone: Please find the February 2022 edition of the Laphound News below. I’m pleased to meet you and honoured to try to fill Gary’s Brookes’ shoes after his good work over the past years. I’m new to lapidary and geology and am thrilled to have the opportunity to learn from, and to get to know you, beginning at the March members’ meeting. See you there! Sincerely, Julia Henshall, Laphound News Editor, firstname.lastname@example.org
