Our Club was formed way back in the 1950s, and a lot of our members still follow old South Florida traditions - such as spending the warm weather days up North, going to all those gem and mineral shows.
What does that mean to us? Historically, it’s meant that (May-to-August) we are unable to bring in enough members to put together a worthwhile meeting. In May, it’s Franklin, NC - June, Cartersville, GA - July, Franklin (again) - August, Spruce Pine, NC and the big one: the East Coast Show in Springfield,MA. So, we’re not having any monthly meetings until school is back in session.
Now, that doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. Those of you who are members, keep reading our monthly email newsletter THE GEODE. We have already equipped and brought back our Club workshop, near the Bird Road Arts District, and the newsletter will have full info about tutoring sessions.
It will also keep you updated about our increased schedule of special activities coming up this Fall - as well as all gem-and-mineral events and activities in the Tri-County area.
As those really hot and steamy summer days move in, please try to keep cool, stay hydrated, and look forward to a re-energized Fall Season!
