Mobile Rock and Gem Society – Mobile, Alabama

*

The typical agenda for a meeting begins with a program. After that there is “show and tell” before old business (like officer and committee reports), then on to new business (like introducing new members and guests, miscellaneous business items, upcoming events and field trips, etc.).. The program usually includes a lecture (by a member or guest speaker), a demonstration of some sort, a video or a workshop.
Since the presentation will vary greatly, some will include only a few of these components and some will involve a little of everything! After the program ends, the meeting is adjourned and we have refreshments and socializing. At this time everyone has the opportunity to ask questions, tell stories, discuss upcoming events or possible activities and make new friends. They are a non-profit organization 501 c(3).Annual Show – Thanksgiving Weekend

    Hi my name is Larry Coleman and i was down at a gem mine in i think 2010 and met a really nice man named Bruce Lott and at the time i’d paid for a private dig for rose quartz amber quartz and tourmiline. any way Bruce opened the mine for us as it was a friend of his that owned the mine. My wife Tessie and i had such a great time with him that day that he gave me his card and told me to get in touch with him if i ever got back down there, we had a blast and we were just thinking about him so i found his card and tried to call but no answer.We had a lil winnebago Rialta at the time and was just wondering if he was still around.He was the President in 2009 and 2010. We hope he’s still around and if he is we’d like to talk to him. If you can help that would be great, from one old rock hound to another we hope all is well so from Alpena Mich. to Alabama thanks and have a great day. Larry and Tessie Coleman
