Please Help Us Find a New Shop

Our Club owns a lot of incredible equipment and we have people willing to teach us how to use it. All we need is an inexpensive permanent home for our shop. Please contact us if you know of a business or an individual that might be able to financially assist us or physically support our Club with a space. The Club can afford a nominal monthly rent to cover electricity and water.

Type of place we could use:

Guest house
Workshop or garage on someone’s property
Warehouse and/or office space

Requirements:

Preferably the Kent area, otherwise Renton or Covington
Approx. 1,000 sq ft.
Water
Electricity
Secure

If you have any questions or ideas on how we can relocate and expand our shop send an email to: president@cascademineralogicalsociety.org

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.

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.
