Happy February! Our Club's Silent Auction of surplus goods at the Jan 22 Tri-county Picnic was a huge success! (Full details in our February GEODE newsletter - which will be emailed by the first-of-the-month.)
This past Fall, we tried combining our monthly meetings with our show-and-tell activities - with mixed results. As a result, we're going back to our old format of periodic regular meetings that will follow our traditional format: welcome, meet-and-greet, announcements, Q & A, an educational presentation and discussion, and refreshments. Our next meeting will take place on Saturday Feb 25 from 2 to 4 PM at St John Lutheran Church in Miami Shores. (Map & directions are in the GEODE - click on Newsletter button at the left.)
As an extra added attraction, we often feature a member raffle or member silent auction. We'll present a member silent auction at this upcoming meeting. Each member may bring up to 10 hobby-related items to the meeting, and the Club will provide auction bid forms for them. Also, please note that the Club will be offering additional surplus items for auction from our storage unit. The silent auction will take place immediately after our educational presentation: THE TANZANITE STORY.
If you have any Tanzanite jewelry or specimens, please bring them to show to our other members and guests at the meeting. (Also bring cash if you wish to bid on any of the bargains at the auction!)
We hope to see you there!
Mark your calendars! Our Spring GEM AND MINERAL SHOW will take place on Sat & Sun April 8 & 9 at EVELYN GREER PARK in Pinecrest.
