Holiday Party

Every year the December meeting transforms into a Holiday gala! The club provides the main meal and members add their own specialty dishes until a veritable feast awaits! Once our bellies are full (and still filling), the gift exchange begins.

Members and visitors bring in gifts for every interest to exchange with others. As each member eyes the table piled high with colorful gifts, our resident Santa always has a new way to decide who gets to choose a gift next.

The holiday party is always great fun, great food, great gifts, and great camaraderie!

Some important reminders about the annual
GMS Holiday Party:


  • The party is a covered dish event

  • GMS will provide meats, drinks, plates, and utensils so bring your favorite side, dessert, casserole, etc.

Gift Exchange:

  • Gifts are not required, but you must bring a gift to receive a gift

  • Gifts must be hobby related -- rock, fossil, mineral, gem, lapidary, sand... the kind of a gift you would like to receive

  • Value of gifts should be less than $3,000 (usually around $15)

Don't Forget:

  • Time is half an hour earlier than regular meetings -- 7:00 pm

  • Relax, Enjoy, and Have Fun!!!
