World-renowned medium David Thompson has the special gift of materialization.  On two past visits, spirit chemists were able to materialize two very special apports.

What is an Apport?
An apport is an object that is dematerialized from one location, transferred through the Ether, and rematerialized into the seance room.  
These are usually objects that have been abandoned or have special meaning to the people who are present.

Dr. Russell Flexer's Change Pouch

This apport was presented to the SCOL community on June 22, 2010 by Dr. Russell Flexer, through the physical mediumship of David Thompson. This is the change pouch that Dr. Russell always kept in his pocket. He transitioned into Spirit in 1977.

Sewing Needle Case

This apport was presented to the SCOL Community on June 18, 2010 by William, through the physical mediumship of David Thompson. The needle case belonged to and was used by Williams mother in the mid-1850's.

Dr Slade Writes on SlateDr. Henry Slade Writes on Slate During Seance

At the November 8, 2011 materialization seance, Dr. Henry Slade, the worlds most famous slate writing medium, came in and picked up one of the slates in the room and wrote "Never Fear" on the slate. He then walked over to the Executive Director, Tom Newman, and handed him the slate.

Timmy, one of David Thompson's guides picked up a piece of chalk during the same seance and wrote on the side of the cabinet while David was in trance. His message can be seen in the picture below.
