It is a beautiful spot to enjoy the sunny afternoon, potluck, rock auction, socializing and the gardens. Guests and children are always welcome!
As usual we are going to have nice rocks and specimen’s up for auction at great prices!
(Our picnic replaces our regular general meeting for August. There is no meeting on August 10th.)
After the picnic you can always go swimming at Lake Wilderness. They have a nice beach and plenty of parking or a very short walk from our picnic area. The beach area also has great shade areas among the trees while you watch the kids play in the water.
From the Top of the Rock Pile . . . I want to thank everyone that attended our Holiday Dinner. We had the best turnout since the club struck out on it’s own. 40 members, family and friends attended. We had a great selection of food. Best ever. Thank you to each one of you for making the dinner such a great success. I found out at our Holiday Dinner that some of our members are artistically talented beyond collecting rocks. If you have another talent besides collecting rocks please let me know. I found out John Cornell does beaded …
Meeting Topic: John Cornell, CMS Member, will be showing off his bead work. He does wall hangings of portraits, landscapes, still life, etc. out of beads. He will bring examples of partially completed and completed works. His work is presently on display at an art gallery in Greenwood. Show ‘n Tell: Your favorite rock, mineral or lapidary item that you received or bought in 2019
The Young Tumblers (youth members) have their own door prize drawing at each meeting. We encourage our Young Tumblers to participate in Show ‘n Tell each month. We also have a section of our monthly newsletter for them only to earn Rock Bucks. Rock Bucks can be spent on the monthly raffle or the club auctions we have throughout the year. The website and newsletter now has your own section. Be sure to look at to see what’s new this month and any announcements.
