The Mount Clemens Gem & Lapidary Society has been in existence since 1969. Our purpose is to educate the general public about the lapidary arts and earth sciences.



Chris Pyszora is still the club president.

We have openings for the following positions: Recording Secretary, Treasurer.

We had a Board meeting on Jan 27, 2016. Ron Rolfe, Jacquie Swain, Glenn Swain, Chris Pyszora and Ken Kreskowiak were in attendance.

It was decided to hold Board and Membership meetings on the same night. The board meeting will start at 6:30 pm with the General Membership meeting to follow at or about 7 pm. Remember if you are present for the board meeting you cannot take part.

It was also decided the meetings would be switched from Thursday nights to Wednesday nights on a bi-monthly schedule starting this March 2nd, 2016. Also we will have a SILENT AUCTION on that night so if you have anything you wish to put up for sale bring it. Auction slips will be available but bring something to write with.

For those who are not familiar with the procedure you will list the item with a starting bid. All bids made will be at least 10 cents more than the previous bid. After a period of time the table will be closed and at that time the highest bid will win the item. If there are no bids for an item it may be purchased for the starting price.

As before 20% of the selling bid will be a donation to the club.


SCIENCE OLYMPIAD: The classes will meet on Feb. 3, 10, 17 and March 2nd. starting at 6 pm. except for Feb 3. We want to start at 5 pm for initial check in. We need a couple of helpers the first night.
