Treasure Chest Thursday- SHOW off that family treasure & TELL the story- Glenda Gardner-Lloyd

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward

...........and here is another of many 'members shared items' from our February Show N Tell. Enjoy!!

I don't think this member needs any introduction because most of you know Glenda Gardner-Lloyd, a Founding Member, Past President and now Parliamentarian, Teacher, Speaker and very active in the society. And if you didn't know her now you do. 

Glenda came to Show N Tell evening as a member with her precious family heirlooms in hand ready to show and tell...... She was also our speaker for the evening, speaking on Heirloom Wisdom....... and she hosted the Show N Tell event. Wow, I am exhausted. Thank you Glenda for all you do. We do appreciate you.

The arrowheads were all found on the ranch in Modoc County. Only the red and black obsidian are native stone to the area. The very small arrowheads were probably for birds. The long thin one in the middle is an awl.

 I put them into a frame about 38 years ago.

sorry for the glare but you can get a much better look at these wonderful treasures
So you ask, Where is Modoc County?  Hint:  it borders Oregon and Nevada- way north

 If you are interested in finding out more about this County and the artifacts that Glenda brought check out the links below..............

Hummmm! Wonder where Glenda's Family Ranch is located? Nothing sounds familiar to me except for Alturas.
