Gem Section Meets
Last Monday Every Month

Ah, the jewels of the rockhounding world. Gems come in many different forms, but one thing is usually certain -- someone took something normal and transformed it into something spectacular!

Join us at Gem Section to see rocks when they are all dressed up and even dress up a few yourself!

No Gem Section Meeting in May

I hope everyone enjoyed the April meeting on Amber led by Martha Brown with Kim’s help. Sorry that Sue and I were not able to be there, Sue was scheduled to help with the program. We wound up In Titusville for a working vacation and baby sitting. We are so lucky to have members like Martha and Kim who are willing to share their vast knowledge with the club.

Because the last Monday in May is Memorial Day, there will not be a Gem Section meeting in May. We will return in June with Jurgen’s presentation on Viking knitting, Part II.

It is our turn to fill the display case for the next couple of months. Bring your “Gem” related items to the May Monthly meeting. I’m looking for items that our gem section members have made to put in the case. I need cabs, jewelry, wire wrapped items, and other jewelry that you have made, and we will put them in the case. These items will remain in the case two to three months.

Since we will not meet in May, we may be called upon to help fold, address and stamp the June version of the newsletter.

Have a safe Memorial Day and I will see everyone at the June Picnic.

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
