December President’s Message

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.
