Golden Bear Awardee 2012


Dee Holland


Dee Holland joined a distinguished group of CFMS achievers this year with the announcement of his being selected as the Golden Bear Honoree for 2012. The presentation was made at the Awards Banquet in Riverside in July.

Dee is well known for his distinguished service to the Northwest Federation as well as to the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.

Since becoming a part of our federation he has devoted his time to promoting competitive exhibiting at the CFMS show.

He was instrumental in beginning a tradition of assisting clubs who want to know about the ways to improve their exhibits, by going to their shows and offering critiques and ideas on how interested individuals can improve. He also takes an active interest in land use policies which affect collecting activities on the public lands.

Congratulations, Dee. This is a well-deserved honor and your fellow Golden Bears welcome you to our midst.

- Pat LaRue, on behalf of the Golden Bear Committee
