Meetings

The Monongahela Rockhounds have monthly meetings.  On the first Saturday of the months September through June, a meeting is held at 7:00 PM (note the new start time) in thenew Munhall Borough Building, located at:

1 Raymond Bodner Way, Munhall PA 15120.

 

Parking is available upstairs, near the main doors or below next to ball field. The new building is the first building next to ball field and fire department.

Note:  The doors will open around 5:30 and will close at 8:00. We may not be able to let anyone in after 8:00! 

The meeting length varies, but usually lasts about 2 hours.  There is no meeting in December, July, or August.  September and January meetings are usually the second Saturday due to Labor Day and New Years weekends.

Meetings will be In-person only for 2023. 

(Zoom will be an alternative meeting method that we can return to on an as-needed basis in the future.)

Our members receive the Monongahela Rockhound News, the monthly newsletter before the meeting:

1.

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

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.

5.

The meeting adjourns.

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.

4.

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