General Meeting, Thursday, July 8, 2021

Our next meeting is on July 8th at 7 pm at the American Legion Hall, Kent.
We will have a fun-filled evening of “Rock Bingo.” Everyone is asked to bring 3 wrapped rocks (rough or polished), crystal, slab, fossil, or lapidary items for each person that intends on playing bingo. There will be a charge of $1 per family and each person can play up to 3 cards.
We always have a lot of fun and everyone goes home a winner.
There will be no Show ‘n Tell at this meeting.
All kids attending will get $3 in Rock Bucks.

Presidents Message

  • From the Top of the Rock Pile . . . . Everything is going well with our club. I am looking forward to putting the year 2021 in the rearview mirror. It feels good to be taking baby steps towards some sense of normalcy. I am also looking forward to the upcoming club elections and having some new people on the board with new ideas. If everything goes as planned we will resume our Cascade Gem & Mineral Show in August 2022. Planning is getting underway as it is only 9 ½ months away. I feel like there is nothing

Meeting Announcements

  • The 2021 holidays are coming upon us very fast!   I am so happy to say that this year we are having our annual potluck dinner, the election of officers, and club auction. Mark Your Calendars Now! Sunday, December 12th, the setup is at 11 am, and dinner is at noon. Our dinner will be held at our regular meeting place, American Legion Hall, Kent. The club supplies roasted turkey and baked ham. You bring a side dish of your choice. If you don’t cook, you can always bring a store-bought dessert, drinks, dinner rolls and butter, cranberry sauce, or something from the grocery deli counter. Just be sure to bring your own silverware and plate. If, for some reason, you can’t bring anything, please plan on joining us anyway. We would rather see you than not see you. It’s always enjoyable to sit and talk with each other and enjoy the season together. It is the club’s opportunity to say thank you for being a member this year. Kat Koch, President
