The first Thursday of the month is a busy time for all members of The Villages Gem and Mineral Society with something for each and every person. See you there!
This Thursday, Nov. 2, 2023 is our next business meeting. We look forward to getting together and hearing about what has been happening here in The Villages and “up north.” As a reminder, this month is the election of officers and all positions are open, so having as many folks present as possible is important.
Jewelry Making Special Interest Group 6-7:30pm
Members who attended the Beaded Connections Technique class Nancy taught on October 26 are encouraged to bring in the projects and finish them up. Or if you have finished your project, bring it in and show us the results. We also would like to take photo of the finished and in-process works to post on the website photo album! We will meet for 1-1/2 hours in the Crescent Beach Room and clean up and then head over to the craft room for the business meeting.
The Dec SIG class will be our annual Holiday Earrings class taught by Deb Delvaux–this month it will be held on Nov 30th because we are holding our holiday party on Dec 7 (hint: wear your earrings!).
Short Workshop 5-7pm
As usual, prior to the business meeting the craft room will be open for us to work on our stones for 2 hours.
5:30-7pm New members session in the Crescent Beach Room
This is a Welcoming session and registration for our newest members.
7:30-8:50pm Business Meeting
Again, one of the items on the agenda is is the election of officers. All positions are open, so this is the perfect opportunity to give back to the Gem and Mineral Society.
BTW: If you want to see past minutes or an agenda from any meeting in the last year, you can see them on the business documents page.
Last, but not least, we always close out the monthly business meeting with a “Chinese Auction”–and there are always some great goodies so don’t cut out early or you will lose out.
