The educational meeting for February will be "The History and Mystery of Opal, and the Geology of the Virgin Valley Opal Occurrence" presented by Jim Hutchings. If you like opal this will no doubt be a very interesting and informative presentation!

There is a potluck as usual followed by the Monthly Challenge, the live rockhound auction and more!

This is a great night to come and see what the club is like if you are thinking about joining SMS and if you like it, you can join right there! Hope to see everyone there! :)

Our Junior Rockhound/Pebble pup Meeting will start at 6pm!

From Glenda:
Our junior meeting will have two topics, the first will be in honor of Valentine's Day... but I am keeping it a surprise. But I can give you a hint: the color is red! Our second topic will be the 3rd and final installment of our Gemstone Lore and Legends badge series.

Parents and guardians, please bring a snack or beverage to share for the Kids Potluck after their activity has concluded!
