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!

Thanks to Kim for his program. I hope everyone enjoyed Kim’s virtual program. We are so lucky at GMS to have Kim as a member. He has over 50 programs he can present on all facets of our hobby.

This month our program will be on Organic Gems presented by Sue Gorday. This program will be presented at the clubhouse. We will try to arrange to share the program on Zoom. If we are able to get things set up, we will put the link on the Gem Section Page of our website and also send an email with the details.

As usual, we will fold, stamp and address the paper copies of the newsletter before the meeting.

I hope to see everyone at the clubhouse or thru the virtual meeting and in the meantime, stay safe!

Jay Gorday,
Gem Section Chair
