For Those of you who asked>>There were questions by new members about equipment, rough rock, lessons on using lapidary equipment, and lessons in jewelry fabrication. Below is a list of members who are willing and able to help with this:
Gary & Mary Gann> 757-8121,  Fred & Dorothy Bunge> 681-2371, Roger Price> 757-1052, Stefan Szabo> 715-4173. As a side note: Gann, Bunge, and Price also have a Shop in the Route 66 Swap Meet, right next to Lew, who is also a Club Member. Between the two shops there is a very wide assortment of rocks, lapidary equipment, knowledge and services available.
The Assembly Of God Church is located on Arnold Rd. As you go N on Stockton it is the first left after passing Northern. Behind the little white dentist office. If you can spare a non-perishable item or some clothing as a donation, it would be appreciated by the Church. We will be having coffee and cold drinks, and if anyone would like to bring a snack item that would be nice.
The Board will meet @ 6:00 PM, and the General Meeting will follow @ 7:00 PM. We do have an open door policy for our Board Meetings, but any members in attendance are expected to participate and not hold a gab fest while the Board members are conducting business. If chatting is a necessity, please do so outside.
