Meetings

The HGMS meets the 4th Tuesday of each month in the South meeting room of the new Huntsville Gem & Mineral Education Center, at the Sandra Moon Community Complex, 7901 Bailey Cove Road SE, Huntsville, Alabama.  Please arrive about 6p.m. to meet and greet fellow club members, guests and visitors!

The business meeting starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. followed by an educational program presented by a member or a special guest.  Programs cover a wide variety of topics related to our hobby, such as mineral identification, earthquakes, meteorites, special lapidary techniques, silversmithing, jewelry making, panning for gold and dinosaurs, to name a few!  Refreshments are served after the meeting.

Please note that we are NOT a club for seniors only!  We have members of all ages including a “Pebble Pups” group for kids ages 8 – 15.  The Pups have monthly meetings and field trips of their own!  We also have an annual Fundraising Auction, Picnic and Rock Swap, and Gem, Jewelry, and Mineral show.
