Annual Mother's Day
Gem & Mineral Show

(Click here for this year's show)

What could be better than a rock for your mother on Mother's Day?

No? Maybe a beautiful mineral specimen? Maybe a fossil? Or how about a stunning piece of handmade jewelry?

Whatever mom's taste may be, she is sure to appreciate a gift from the earth and the best place to find one of those (a clean one anyway) is at the annual GMS Mother's Day Gem & Mineral Show!

Held every Mother's Day weekend, this show draws dealers from all over the country as well as people eager to peruse and purchase unique items.

The entire show is planned, prepared, and executed by GMS member volunteers. From cutting, sewing, making, and filling grab bags for kids to setting up display cases, feeding dealers and volunteers, managing dealer contracts, show advertising, demonstrations, auctions -- there are many things that GMS members do to make this one of the best shows in the Southeast.

So even if you don't volunteer, come to the show and support the hard-working members and dealers who do their best to entertain you.

May Show Message


GMS Annual Show
May 10, 11, 12

Hello fellow rockhounds,

Our 55th annual Mother's Day Weekend Gem, Mineral, Jewelry, and Fossil Show is right around the corner (05/8 - 05/13 including set up and break down) and we need lots of help to pull it off and make this a successful, enjoyable show for everybody. For the dealer dinner the club provides the main dish. This year it will be a cookout including hamburgers and hot dogs. If you are volunteering for that particular time slot (Thursday) and you are bringing a side dish, please indicate what it is in the comment section. If you are not volunteering, but would like to bring a dish, please do so. We still need volunteers for demos and workshops. If you are available, please contact Jay Gorday at or Lori Carter at

Should you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line at . Also, the May general meeting is all about the show and I can address your questions then.

[NOTE: Email with a link to a sign-up sheet was sent to members -- webmaster]

We appreciate your help!
