General Meeting – January 13th (Click Here For More Information)

Our January 13th meeting will be a Zoom meeting at 7 pm.

Share your story with us. How did you get into rock hounding or lapidary arts?

What do you like to do? Do you collect rocks, minerals, or fossils, like to polish, cut opals, facet stones, another lapidary art, or in the club just for the field trips?

How did you hear about our club?

We have to switch to a Zoom meeting because of the King County Directive for Covid/Omnicron. All business, non-profits, and public meeting attendees must show proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the meeting. Unfortunately, the Board doesn’t know how to enforce this requirement.

Please check your email for the link to the meeting. It will be sent either Jan 10 or 11th.
