From the Top of the Rock Pile ….by Kat Koch
We are starting to plan our 2023 Cascade Gem and Mineral Show. We still need a Show Chairperson. The show dates are September 16 & 17, 2023. The venue has been booked, we have a 1st Co-Chairperson, and many major show areas already have volunteers committed to covering them. Now we need a coordinator – that’s the Show Chairperson. I have copious notes on what needs to be coordinated. I am very willing to work closely with the Show Chairperson; to guide them, share my knowledge, and give you my two cents when you ask for it. Please seriously consider volunteering. It is a coordinating job that can be done from home.
2023 is the year our club starts its 75th anniversary. There is so much to celebrate in reaching this milestone. There was a period of about 5 or 6 years after the club left the Boeing property and also had to change its name that the board didn’t think we would survive. Today we are entering 2023 as a financially healthy, growing, and active club. Thank you to everyone that has contributed to our success and the ability to celebrate 75 years!
We have two interesting meetings coming up for January and February. I hope all of you attend the meetings. It is always great to see everyone at our meetings and to get a chance to visit with each other.
Welcome to all our new members. I also appreciate all the members that renewed their membership! When you attend our monthly meeting, please introduce yourself to me, as I look forward to meeting everyone.
Kat Koch, President
