The founders of the “Rock Food Table," originally known as the “Gulf Coast Gem and Mineral Society Food Table,” were Bill and Lois Pattillo. They brought the idea to life and set up the exhibit from 1983 – 2013. Table ownership eventually changed to Keith and Toni Harmon and then to East Texas Gem & Mineral Society.
