1.

Meetings usually begin with a presentation by an invited speaker or club member on a topic of mineral, fossil, or lapidary interest.

2.

We take a social break with refreshments, provided by the month's hosts, while the silent auction runs. Members (and new guests) bid on donated hobby related materials, the proceeds of which are used to support club activities and operations.

3.

There is a show & tell period.  For every meeting, there is a "Mineral of the Month."  This is not a requirement, but merely a suggestion to help create a more themed show & tell.

4.

The business meeting begins.  Collecting trips and upcoming events are discussed.  Club officers deliver their monthly updates and reports.

5.

The meeting adjourns.
