President’s Message – May 2018

In case you have not noticed, our Club member Roger Danneman has taken over as CMS Field Trip Guide. He has been working hard on setting up field trips, checking out the sites beforehand and then leading the trips. Thank you very much for taking over this very time consuming job!

At our April general meeting we had 6 volunteers offer their help wherever needed. I want to thank each of you very much for volunteering. We will have sign up sheets at the May thru August meetings for the kids table, greeting tables, raffle tickets, silent auction table and day time show security. It will take a lot of volunteers to cover all these areas so please plan on covering some of the time slots.

Contact Mark Hohn, Show Chair, to volunteer for a specific area or for wherever needed. His info is in our newsletter.

Mike and I attended the Northwest Federation – Yakima Rock and Gem Show. Our own Bob Pattie was a speaker at the show! At our May meeting I will announce the awards CMS won.

Meeting Announcements

  • I am very proud of our Junior Tumbler’s. Alex Danneman, Isaiah Fu, Isabel Viejo, Alexa Viejo will have display cases at our Show. They each will be working on badges. Last year our Juniors did an outstanding job on their first time display cases and each earned their “Showmanship” badge.. 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.

  • The Young Tumblers (youth members) have their own door prize drawing at each meeting. We encourage our Young Tumblers to participate in Show ‘n Tell each month. 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.
