From the Top of the Rock Pile …. by Kat Koch
Our club election is coming up in December. As I write this article, our membership stands at 145 families. We will most likely reach 150 family memberships by the end of the year. I point this out because we need some of our members to volunteer to run for board positions.
Some volunteers have been board members for decades and are getting older. We really need younger members to step up for our club’s continuing success, which will be our younger members taking over the reins of our great club. We also need our younger members to be active and give us new ideas and input for our club.
Being a board member doesn’t take a lot of time. We have an online board meeting on the Monday before our monthly meeting at 7 pm. We need two positions filled in the upcoming election: a Vice President and Director of Programs. If you are still unsure about volunteering, plenty of board members are willing to show you the ropes or help you fulfill a position.
As you are reading this, please consider volunteering for a position. Our club needs you!
We continue to get new members online or in person at our monthly meetings. We welcome each of you to our great rock and gem club. When you attend our monthly meeting, please introduce yourself to me, as I look forward to meeting each of you.
I want to welcome the new families that joined our club at our gem show.
I look forward to seeing everyone at our November meeting. Look for further meeting details elsewhere in this issue of the Tumbler.
Kat Koch, President
