Next Meeting: September 7, 2023; 7:00pm
We do not have a regular club meeting in August but the month is still busy for WAMS members. We will gather for our annual WAMS Members picnic on August 6, and we have our annual End of Summer Show August 18 – 20.
The program for our September meeting is being determined. Our alphabet Show-n-Tell for September will feature your rocks, minerals or other finds that start with the letter H and any of your finds that you want to share. If you have items that you need help identifying, be sure to bring those.
Our Juniors will start their program at 6:30pm.
WAMSI meets the first first Thursday of each month at Salem’s Center 50+.
You do not need to be 50+ to join WAMSI. In fact we have a large Juniors Club (members under 18) who meet at 6:30 before each regular meeting.
Please be sure to get your Center 50+ bar code tag which all Center visitors must have for entry.
If you do not yet have one, please come early to get a tag. The process for each person takes between 5 and 10 minutes. Or if in Salem in the days before meeting, stop by the Center to get yours. Center 50+ is open from 9:00 am to 8:30 pm, Monday to Thursday.
The regular meeting begins at 7:00 pm with introduction of officers, we then have a “Show & Tell” where members can show off their best finds or get a rock identified.
Next we have a program or speaker on a topic of interest to rock hounds. After a short intermission, there is the business portion of the meeting.
Last, but not least, we have the Scholarship and Door Prize drawings where you can win a rock!
Visitors always welcome!
