General Meeting – Sunday, December 3rd – Holiday Party

Topic: Our Annual Holiday party, potluck, the election of Officers, and action.

Potluck: The club provides turkey and ham. Members fill in with veggies, salad, rolls, butter, dessert, drinks, etc.

We generally have around 40 to 45 members attend.

Bring your plate and silverware.

Setup is at 11:30 am, and dinner is at noon. We usually wrap things up by 4 pm.

Election: After dinner, we hold the election of the Board of Directors for 2024. See Pete, the club secretary, if you want to volunteer for a Board position.

Club Auction. Our club auctions are a great chance to pick up items at a fraction of their retail cost. You are welcome to donate items to the auction. All proceeds go to the club treasury to cover expenses.

Our Young Tumblers can also spend their “Rock Bucks” at the auction that they have saved, just like cash for items they want.

Meeting Announcements

  • Topic: Out-of-state rockhounding sites by Roger Danneman Oregon, Utah, Idaho, Montana, etc. – So many rockhounding places! We have a few members who have combined a road trip vacation and rockhounding that will collaborate on this. It’s interesting to see the variety of material from these areas. After this meeting, you may want to plan a road trip too! Show ‘n Tell: Show us something you have found or bought on a road trip.

  • April 11th – Rock Bingo (Spring Break) and Food Drive This meeting is our annual “Rock Bingo” night. It is held during spring break so our Young Tumblers and their friends can attend without worrying about school the next day. Each member is asked to bring 3 wrapped items for each person who intends to play Bingo. You can play up to 3 games in person, and every person goes home a winner. Please try to donate an item you would like to receive, not junk slabs and rocks. Let’s all plan to have a fun evening together. Guests are welcome, and we encourage our Young Tumblers to bring their friends. Food Drive – We are collecting food for the Kent Food again. Try to donate 1 item or more for every person playing Bingo.
