Holiday Potluck Dinner/Meeting/Auction – Sunday, Dec 16th

Our annual holiday dinner is coming upon us fast! Please mark your calendars and plan to attend.

Sunday, December 16th. Setup is at 12 noon with dinner at 1 pm.  Club members and their families, and guests are welcome to join us.

The Club provides turkey, ham and holiday punch (non-alcoholic). Members are asked to bring a potluck side dish, drinks or dessert to fill-in our table. Also bring your own table service.

After enjoying a good meal and great conversation we will have an election of Officers for the calendar year 2019. Then we will have an auction of some items (rocks, fossils, opals, lapidary made items and so much more) the Club has on hand. It’s a good time to pickup some great bargains and gifts for that special someone. Our Young Tumblers can use their Rock Bucks to buy any auction items.

I know some people may attend church and can’t make it by 11 am. It’s okay to be late so please join us when you can.  If you are unable to bring anything for the food table please plan on attending anyway. Everyone is welcome.

  • 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.
