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.
It has been over 1 year since we left our location. How time flies. Our equipment and supplies, etc, are in storage at Inland for a very reasonable price. $0.00 dollars per month. During this time we found places to hold our meetings. We continued looking for a home but haven’t been able to find one. Downtown Mt. Clemens was the first location. Would have been great with all the daytime foot traffic. But again the price was very prohibitive. No matter who we contact and offer a letter of donation to reduce the price the answer is the same. Can’t do it. So we continue our hunt.

This is where we hold our Membership meetings. Our contract with the library is ending this December and will have to be renewed for the 2016 year. We will list it here when we know it is confirmed. As stated below there will be NO meetings for the months of November and December. We will print items on this page during this time so keep checking this site.
We wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. At our board meeting it was decided to not have November or December meetings. All meetings are canceled because of the holidays. Also we have had only 3 board members attending our meetings and we can’t conduct business without others to discuss topics that are important to the club.
As for the membership meetings we have had a number of members who regularly attend but it also isn’t enough to have a quorum to do business. Therefore it has been decided to not have meetings for these months.
The next meeting will be a general membership meeting on January 7, 2016. We are hoping we have better attendance starting with this meeting and that it continues throughout the rest of the year. We are hoping members who haven’t attended will decide to do so. The Topic will be a Show and Tell by anyone that wishes to do so. Talk about any gift you have received, a rock collection you have, jewelry you have made, your travels or any topic that tickles your fancy. We know there are very talented members out there and we would like very much to see your work.
The next board meeting will be January 28, 2016. The starting time will be as usual 6:30 pm. Because of the new year we will have to check to see if the same arrangements can be made as to location of the meetings.
