December President’s Message

There isn’t much Club news.

I am busy trying to plan 2017’s meeting agendas. I am looking for input from our members. If there is a topic you would like to have presented, any idea’s on how to improve our General meetings or the Club in general please let me know.

In March we are going to have our “Rock Bingo” again. Everyone enjoyed it the last time and have asked to have it again. I am asking all members to bring 3 nice rocks, crystals, fossils or slabs to this meeting as bingo prizes. Make sure they are wrapped: Gift paper, paper bag, newspaper, tissue paper, etc. So plan ahead and have these rocks ready for our March meeting. This is also a great meeting for the younger members and their friends.

I really need someone to volunteer to put together the General meeting presentations each month. It’s not a hard job. You just need to line up a video or speaker for our meetings. Anyone want to help me out?

Our next General meeting is Thursday, January 12th. Have a good holiday and I will see everyone next year.

Meeting Announcements

  • I am very proud of our Junior Tumbler’s. Alex Danneman, Isaiah Fu, Isabel Viejo, Alexa Viejo will have display cases at our Show. They each will be working on badges.

This is the 2nd year for Alex and Isaiah and the first time for Isabel and Alexa. I am looking forward to seeing each of their cases.

  • 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.
