Thursday, October 12th – General Meeting

Meeting Topic: Joan of Jerry’s Rock Shop will give a talk on “Buyer Be Aware When Buying Rocks and Minerals” and other interesting things.

Show ‘n Tell: A rock, gem or fossil you are exceptionally proud to own. Also if you entered anything in the 2017 Puyallup Fair, bring it to the meeting and share with us your items. We would like to see what you made or entered whether it won any ribbons or not. 

The Fair had a large amount of entries for Lapidary this year. Therefore, they have decided to keep the Lapidary category/class, revamp it’s categories/classes and give Lapidary more room to display the entries. Thanks to everyone that displayed this year. Now remember we have to do this again next year.
