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!

Date: Monday, January 28, 2019
Time: 7:30 pm
Speaker: Kim Cochran
Topic: Organic Gems
Location: GMS Building

I hope everyone had a great Holiday Season with family and friends. I know I ate way more than I should, but that is part of the holidays.

There was no meeting in December, so it’s time to get back to a more “normal” schedule. This includes remembering to write 2019 instead of 2018 for the date. This month we have one of our own to give the program, the man of at least 50 programs (probably more), Kim Cochran. Kim is going to talk on Organic Gems. This will be a very informative program and you don’t want to miss it.

As usual, we will start the evening by folding, addressing and stamping the paper copies of the newsletter and the meeting will start at 7:30PM. I hope to see everyone there.

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
