President’s Message – February 2020 (Click Here to see more)

From the Top of the Rock Pile . . .

I am busy with planning and writing the website to sell booth space for our 2020 Show. I am also the Bulletin Aids Chair for NFMS this year. It is the busiest time of the year for this position as I am in charge of all the NFMS contest submissions except websites. Thank goodness, this closes our shortly. FYI: There isno conflict of interest as I do not judge any of the entries from our club.

Mike has threatened to tie my hands down in order for me not to volunteer for anything else anywhere. I agree so he doesn’t have to worry.

I want to thank everyone in the club for stepping up to fill all the chair positions. Now I need to fill the various volunteer time slots at the show. So please consider to signing up now so you can then mark your calendar and won’t have any conflicting commitments.

Mike and I will be going to the Tucson Gem Show this year and then on to San Antonio, Texas to visit Mike’s daughter. I will be missing the February Board and Club meeting. VP Merriann Fu will be handling everything while I am gone. I am always in contact via email and my cell number.

See all of you in March –

Kat Koch, President
