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!
