Our next scheduled General Meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 1, 2014,

at 7:45 PM at the MIAMI SCIENCE MUSEUM, 3280 S. Miami Avenue - directly across the street from Vizcaya.  Our featured program will be a video presentation on the SPOKANE BAR SAPPHIRE MINE near Helena, Montana – along with commentary by our President John Speier, who visited the mine several years ago.  The mineral of the month will be Smithsonite - you are encouraged to bring in specimens that you may have to display to our club members.  The gemstone of the month is Opal – please feel free to bring in any specimens, cut stones, or jewelry pieces that you may have.


In addition to the program, we’ll have announcements, displays, and refreshments - with lots of opportunity to meet-and-greet.  There is even a rumor that Patrick Monagle and his famous gem-and-mineral raffle will be there.
We hope to see you there too!


As always, visitors and guests are welcome.


Our next tri-county (Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach) inter-club picnic will take place on Sunday, October 5, at TY Park (in Broward County), at Pavilion #9. There will be good food, good company, and a good opportunity to buy/sell/trade hobby-related items – not to mention BINGO and raffles!!!


Here’s a heads up for the month after next:The MIAMI MINERALOGICAL AND LAPIDARY GUILD (MMLG) is celebrating its 60th anniversary by holding a Gem, Jewelry, Mineral, and Fossil Show on Dec 6 & 7 from 10 AM to 6 PM at EVELYN GREER PARK, 8200 SW 124 Street in the Village of Pinecrest – just one block off US 1 with plenty of free parking.  Admission is $4 – children under 12 admitted free (with paid adult admission).


There will be exhibits, displays, demonstrations, raffles, and vendors 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.


Shortly, we’ll be contacting all members with details about volunteering, displaying showcases, and applying for vendor tables.  We’re looking forward to a really great show!
