Our recent Spring Gem & Mineral Show was a huge success! Attendance was up - the Chinese Raffle winners were delighted - the Children’s Activities were fabulous - we had more diversity of vendors than ever before - and the UM Geology demonstrations were fantastic. Everyone kept asking when the Fall Show would take place. The answer - Saturday & Sunday December 2 & 3.
Until then, we hope to see you at the Spring Tri-county picnic (see below)…
The next tri-county clubs’ picnic will take place at TY Park in Hollywood on Sunday June 4 in Pavilion 9 – food, friends, fun!
Mark it on your calendar – bring a side dish (the Clubs provide turkey, ham,and sloppy Joes). Brunching & Munching starts around 11 AM, and there’s a lot of Show-and-Tell plus Swap-and-Sell of minerals, gems, jewelry, supplies – all followed by a raffle and bingo. Take Sheridan Street west off I-95.
Our Officers and Board will be meeting shortly to plan our Fall activities. One major issue is finding a conveniently-located affordable place to hold our monthly meetings. Another issue is securing a lower-cost storage facility for our specimens, equipment, and supplies. (We’re currently paying $250 monthly for a 200 square foot unit without air-conditioning.) Also, we’ve not been able to offer lapidary and jewelry arts workshops for more than seven years due to lack of a physical site to hold them.
What is it that the real estate professionals say? Location, locationlocation! That’s our need and our quest. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please contact us at: webguy@mmlg-Inc.org.
