We Need Show Volunteers

Our Fall Gem, Jewelry, and Mineral Show is only 1 1/2 months away!

We will be recruiting Activity Leaders at the August Meeting, and they will begin recruiting helpers for all
Show scheduled times.  Please consider signing up for one of these opportunities and let Bill Friday or Mike Harrison know your plans.

Membership Reminder

Membership Dues will become due starting at the Show, and the cutoff will be Dec 31st, 2023.  This change is put in place to make it easier and less costly for us to maintain our association with the
Southeast Federation of Mineralogical Societies, which, among other benefits, pays for our Insurance Coverage and allows us to attend Dixie Mineral Council Field Trips.  These fees are based on membership as of Dec 31st, 2023.  Thanks, Theresa Chivers, Membership  (

Return Show Yard Signs

Please return any of the Show Yard Signs which you may still have at home, even ones from previous years, so they can be updated for this year’s Show.  They are expensive to replace.
Thanks, Tony Smith, Show Chair
