It is with sadness that we acknowledge the passing of longtime SWWGP member Dan Shelton. As many of you knew, he had cancer and fought it to the very end. One of his wishes during his illness was to go gold panning again. RIP

Dale Long Presidents Message:

On May 28th 2018 Dale Long passed away and our chapter lost a beloved friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with Patti and family.
For those of us who were fortunate enough to call Dale friend we will miss his smile and sense of humor.

Dale and Patti have been board members for our chapter for over 3 years always willing to help where they were needed. Dale  helped organize and worked at every gold show that our chapter has participated in. He also worked on several committees including the gold show committee and the bi-laws committee. He loved helping with our raffles and was always willing to help in any way possible.

Our chapter will miss him and we will personally miss our friend. Please respect the family in their time of sorrow.

Rest in peace Dale.


Debbie (SWWGP President)
