It’s been a long time - but we’re back!
We hope that all of you out there got through this tough climate-changed summer all right.
We’re resuming our regular monthly meetings, starting this month. That first meeting will
take place on SUNDAY September 25 at 1 PM at the BETTER FAMILIES THROUGH TAE KWON
DO ACADEMY located at 6723 SW 81st St. Miami, FL 33143, just behind THE BIG CHEESE, a
South Dade dining landmark. It’s just half-a-block off the intersection of SW 67 Ave and US 1.
As always, there will be announcements, meet-and-greet, stone-of-the-month,
refreshments, and a special door prize - a bound copy of the AMFED-produced book, LEWIS &
CLARK: ROCKHOUNDING ON THE WAY TO THE PACIFIC. We’re also resuming our most
popular traditional meeting activity – the Club Raffle – featuring specimens, gemstones,
educational materials, and artisan jewelry (always fabulous values). The educational
presentation will be about a gem phenomenon that most of us have never heard of – Carved
and Faceted Pearls.
We hope that all our members – both long timers as well as newbies - will be there. Non-
member visitors are always welcome to see who we are and what we’re all about.
Whichever category you belong to, we invite you to please join us.
