The Rock Party was a success. Over 700 people, including 340 children, took part in the Rock Party at the Idaho Museum of Mining and Geology. It was especially engaging for children who worked their way through over a dozen hands-on activities that focused on geology, fossils, and mining history. Special thanks goes to Patsy Wolter and Pat Ware (Kid-Station Facilitators), 80-plus dedicated volunteers, family and friends, Idaho Humanities Council for their financial support, Idaho Botanical Garden, Old Idaho Pen, Event Rent, Idaho Statesman, Idaho Family Magazine, Advanced Signs & Design, Boise Public Schools, Signs Now and Office Depot/Max (Franklin). We had a blast and are grateful for your help and support.
