August 2017 President’s Notes


Summer is drawing to a close. Hopefully cooler weather isn’t far behind. This will give us a chance to hunt the valleys and hills for buried gems. Remember; however, duck and deer season is approaching as well. Be sure you know the property you are on and be safe.

Also approaching is AGMS’ annual show GEM Capers. There are many ways you can be part of it. We always need volunteers to help our visitors. The young ones need help in digging in the gem mine and spinning the wheel of fortune. Maybe you can assist as a cashier. And we always need assitance in set up and take down.

Do you have a collection of beading, minerals, fossils, cabochons and/or other gems? We have many secure display cases begging for someone to display their treasures. Are you a cabber? Enter this year’s cab contest. The theme is any material with RED in it. More details coming later.

Hope you had a good summer and I’ll see you soon.
