The Worcester Mineral Club has about 100 members with interests in minerals, gems, fossils, lapidary, jewelry making, treasure hunting, mineralogy, geology, paleontology, and other Earth sciences. People of all ages are welcome and encouraged to share their interests in and through the club. MEETINGS The club generally meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM (except July and August) at Trinity Episcopal Church, Main Street, Shrewsbury. Trips to collecting sites, museums, and special events are planned throughout the year. The meetings generally consist of a short business agenda followed by an educational or informative program. Programs presented may be speakers often with slides, specimens, or other visual aides, films, or demonstrations. Speakers talk on a variety of topics and range from our own club members with experiences or expertise to share to prominent researchers that work in an Earth science field. Children’s educational programs and activities are planned for meetings as interest arises. There are door prizes drawn at the meetings. Refreshments are available. In addition, everyone is encouraged to bring in specimens or their lapidary work to display to the members. MEMBERSHIP All are welcome to join the Worcester Mineral Club. The cost for individual membership is $10.00 per year and $15.00 per year for family memberships (2 adults 18+ max). Dues are payable at the time of membership, which runs from September to September.
