President’s Message – March 2017

The Board is diligently working on finding a venue for our 2018 Rock & Gem Show. We have also sent out inquiries to 40 prospective vendors asking what date they would prefer for our show. In the near future we will be calling for Committee Leaders and committee members.

Currently the Show meeting is held in conjunction with the Board meeting. All members are welcome to attend if you are interested in helping out or just curious as to what’s happening. Our next meeting is March 6th @ 7 pm, Panera Bread, Kent Station. We do need a Show Coordinator so if you are interested let me know. If we break up areas of responsibility into several committees then less will fall on the shoulders of a few.

I am still looking for volunteers to help cover our booth at the Puyallup Gem Fair March 31st through April 2nd. They are 4 hours time slots and entails telling visitors about our Club and handing out Club material. It’s really an enjoyable way to help out our club.
