Sometimes, not everybody gets the memo! We’re sorry that some of our members didn’t realize that our club no longer meets at the Coral Gables location. We’ve done our best to let everyone know that our two regular monthly events have been consolidated into one single event being held on the second Saturday of each month at a new location in Miami Shores.
For October, the MIAMI MINERALOGICAL AND LAPIDARY GUILD (MMLG) will present its monthly Rock-Mineral-Fossil Open House Event on Saturday Oct 8 from 1 PM to 4 PM in Fellowship Hall at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, 10390 NE 2 Avenue in Miami Shores, with plenty of free parking. Families and individuals of all ages are welcome to this free community event.
There will be exhibits, displays, educational presentations, raffles, and club members showcasing mineral & fossil specimens, gemstones, fine jewelry, and artisan-crafted collectibles. Children’s activities include jewelry-making sessions, surprise grab-bags, gem prospecting, and geode splitting – and every child receives a free mini mineral collection! Visit for just a few minutes or hang out with us rockhounds for the whole time.
The Show & Tell - Swap & Sell, the children’s activities, and the exhibits will take place continuously during the session. We’re also presenting a video presentation, RHODOCHROSITE: Red Treasure of the Rockies - with showings starting at 1:00 PM and 2:30 PM. We’ll also have our very popular LUCKY 7 CHINESE RAFFLE of minerals and lapidary items taking place at 2:00 PM and 3:00 PM.
Come on out and join us for a rockin’ good time!
The parking lot entrance on NE 103 Street is only 2 minutes from the I-95 on- and off-ramps. The site is 8 blocks south of Barry University - 4 blocks west of Miami Shores Country Club - and 2 blocks north of Miami Shores Village Hall.
