There is no CGMS General Meeting for December 2013.


There will be the Annual Christmas/News Years Party on Saturday January 4, 2014 at 6:00pm at  Grecian Gardens.  


We will keep our tradition of the gift exchange. Everyone brings a wrapped gift and everyone goes home with a gift. This can be one gift per family or one per person (your choice).  If you bring one per family you go home with one...if you bring two you go home with two. You can still join us and not take part in the gift exchange. We generally keep the value of the gifts between $10.00 and $15.00. Usually the gifts are specimens / lapidary art / fossils and similar items that appeal to our club members. There will be a limited menu to order from; about 4 items, and everyone pays their own bill.



Refreshments: None in December 2013

Remember no food or drinks in The McKissick Museum Auditorium.
