Annual Picnic – Sunday, August 9th (Click Here for More Info)

This is going to be our first meeting since February!! I am so looking forward to seeing everyone.

We have reserved our regular spot at the Lake Wilderness Arboretum, Maple Valley, WA. It’s adjacent to Lake Wilderness Recreation and Beach Area.

Setup is at 12 noon and lunch starts at 1 pm. It’s potluck so bring your favorite entree, side dish, rolls, desert or soda pop to share. There will an auction following lunch. Also bring your own silverware and plates.

All Young Tumblers attending will get $10 in Rock Bucks to use at the auction. So add these Rock Bucks to the ones you have saved during the year and you can bid and possibly take home a lot of cool rocks and minerals. If you don’t find anything you like you can save them for the monthly meeting raffle tickets or the Holiday Party Auction.

We will take all precautions to stay healthy. We will sanitizer everything before anyone arrives. The serving utensils will also be sanitized before the buffet line opens. We are asking for more tables so we can sit further apart. We will request everyone to wear a face mask when not eating. There will also be plenty of hand sanitizer available.

The Arboretum is so beautiful this time of year. Our tables are always in the shade of the trees. Please mark your calendars and plan on joining us.

On the news they say there are a lot more animals, birds and bees because of less human activity. Let’s show them that they aren’t the only ones that enjoy the great outdoors

  • From the Top of the Rock Pile . . . . . . . I guess the biggest news since last May’s news bulletin is our Board voted to cancel our Gem Show in September. The Board has already reserved the dates for our show next year, September 17-19, 2021. By then we should all know the changes that will be required to put on a public event. A gem show is unique as a good portion of our vendors, visitors and volunteers fall into the high risk range for this virus. We will have to be fully cognizant of
