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!

Gem Section Message

Date: Monday, February 26, 2024
Social Time: 7:00 pm
Meeting Time: 7:30 pm
Speaker: Kim Cochran
Topic: TBD
Location: In-Person
I hope everyone enjoyed Dion’s talk on identifying gemstones. I hope everyone in Zoom Land was able to follow along. This meeting was better, if you were at the clubhouse, but hope you were able to follow along online. We did our best.

Kim Cochran will be our speaker for the February Gem Section meeting. I do not know the topic yet as I write this NL item. Kim will let me know later, and I will include it in the email blast with the zoom link.

Zoom will open at 7:00 pm for visiting and the program will start at 7:30pm.

For those who show up at the clubhouse, we will fold and address the Tips and Trips and get them ready to mail before the meeting starts.

I hope to see everyone online thru the virtual meeting or In person at the clubhouse for the February 2024 Gem Section Meeting. In the meantime, stay safe and warm.

Jay Gorday and Diana Poppelreuter
Gem Section Co-Chairs
