APRIL 2016 PROGRAM
Lapidary is offered at Mohave Community College only as a "Leisure Studies" course.
So, no tests, no worries about grades. It has been combined with silversmithing and is taught on Tuesday of each week.
The instructor is Rick Vroman, who brings a wealth of experience to the job.
At the next meeting of the Mohave County Gemstoners, to be held Tuesday, April 12th, 2016, Mr Vroman will
discuss what is offered in the course, what machines the lapidary facility has available, how much the course costs,
and other pertinent facts. He will also touch on the subject of silversmithing, which is taught in conjunction with the
lapidary course. Rick has been heading up the lapidary department for many years now, and he will make himself
available to answer your questions after his presentation. So this is your chance to learn what resources are available
at MCC for the mineral/gemstone/silversmithing enthusiast.
The meeting will be held at 7:00 pm at the First Assembly of God Church on Arnold Street, 1 block west of Stockton
Hill Road. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
