As many of you know–and some might not know–the club is going to have to give up the current club house. The club cannot afford to keep paying the rent and other bills associated with the upkeep of the facility. the board and I have been investigating several options over the last couple of months, but nothing has panned out where we can keep the present club house. The current plan is to put the club’s assets into storage and find a place to have meetings. We have to be out of the existing facility by July 31,2014. To help facilitate this, we will need help in packing things up. We will be meeting Monday and Tuesday July 7 and July 8. Monday at 9 am. and Tuesday at 1 pm. to pack. We will need small plastic trash bags to wrap the library books for storage. Cardboard boxes and reinforced tape.

Memberships are:
Individual $20.00
Family $35.00
Family consists of 1 or 2 parents with a child under 18.

If you would like the Crystal Gazer mailed to you please bring 12 self addressed stamped envelopes to the club and we will be glad to drop them in the mail.

NOTE: We also have a Facebook page at Mt. Clemens Gem and Lapidary Society.
