Hello to all my TFF friends. I'm sorry I haven't been as regular a fixture on the site as I typically am. I am stretched very thin as of late with work. My collecting has been limited to fossils from the mailbox formation. As most of you are aware, in addition to being a teacher and theater professional, I am also one of the lead educators at the Penn Dixie Fossil Park and Nature Reserve in Hamburg, NY. For most fossil enthusiasts, PD represents a sometimes annual pilgrimage to one of the hottest fossil locations in the United States. There I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting many of you and helping you to find many a trilobite and certainly pounds of horn corals. Once again, the time of year has come where my executive director, Dr. Phil Stokes, has asked me to put out the request for help in raising funds to help us continue to serve collectors as well as the general public. Please find attached a copy of this year's invitation to join us for our annual fundraising event in Buffalo, NY, as well as our board's solicitation for donations to auction at this year's event. If you've enjoyed a visit to the site, or hope to in the future, please consider any fossil or paleontology-related item donation for our live and silent auctions. Your contributions, no matter how large or small, will help us to get that much closer to a permanent building, increased staffing, and future excavations at the site. Penn Dixie Fossil Park and Nature Reserve, a part of the Hamburg Natural History Society, is a non-for-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible. Interested parties can contact me directly by PM and I can put you in touch with Dr. Stokes or one of our board members. As always, thank you in advance for your consideration, friendship, and support! -Jay Wollin

Hello all! I am throwing myself at the mercy of the community in the hopes that I might stumble across a kind and generous person or two who may be interested in helping to support the continued growth of the Penn Dixie Paleontological and Outdoor Education Center in Hamburg, NY. Many of you have been to the site, or hope to go to the site in the future. As one of the nation's top fossil parks, the importance of the site should go without saying. The continued support of the local community as well that of organizations and generous individuals allows the site to not only remain open to the public, but also to grow and provide a more robust and enjoyable experience for both professionals and amateurs alike. This Nov. 3rd, the Hamburg Natural History Society, (the parent organization of Penn Dixie,) will be hosting an annual fundraiser. I am approaching the Fossil Forum community in the hopes that I can talk some generous souls into donating fossil specimens from other parts of the globe for auction at the event. The organization is, of course, a non-for-profit and your contribution can be counted as a write-off. Anyone interested in helping to support this wonderful site and guarantee its existence for future generations, please feel free to DM me for additional information. Thank you all in advance!
