We had another successful Rock & Gem Show under the leadership of Mark Hohn! As all of you have probably heard by now, Mark has resigned as Show Chairman so that he can spend more time traveling during the summer with his wife, Penny. I thank Mark for all his hard work these past two years. You have left us with huge shoes to fill.
We are now on a search for a new Show Chairman or Assist. Show Chairman. If you would like to volunteer for either position please email from our website under the “Contact” page. This is a 2 year Board position and would also require you to attend our Board meetings. Any volunteers for either position will be interviewed by the Board and the selection of the volunteer to fulfill the position will be made by the Board.
We are also looking for in indoor facility for a lapidary shop. We must be able to heat the area and to work in the shop year round. Do you know of a vacant house, unused light industrial space, unused 2 or 3 car garage, we also interested in unused space in a city or state building. If you know of such a space contact or have any ideas for a shop please contact me through the website.
