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.
