Welcome!

The Northeast Georgia Mineral Society (NEGMS) invites you to attend our monthly meeting, on the first Thursday of each month.

At each meeting, we have a presentation on a topic of interest, plus time to socialize and enjoy some refreshments. We also have a raffle, with many prizes to win at each meeting (rocks, minerals, gems, literature, etc). Tickets are $1, and you can buy as many tickets as you like.

You are welcome to attend as a guest, or become a regular member.

Membership is $15 for individuals, $20 per family (annual). As a member you will receive our monthly newsletter, and you can attend any of our advertised field trips. You will also be able to attend field trips organized by the Dixie Mineral Council (DMC) Field Trip Sharing Program.

For more information, contact Claudia at 706-865-0988, or info@negms.org.

Rockhounding Travels / Rock Sale
(Speaker: Bo Bryant)

Bo is a rockhound from Elberton, GA, and is a remote member of our club. He travels to dig sites and shows around the country through much of the year. We will have an informal chat about places he likes to go, stories from the road, or just wherever the conversation leads. If you don't know Bo yet, you'll have a new friend before the night is over!

As many of you know from our trip to his house last summer, he also funds his travels by selling much of what he finds, and we've invited him to bring some buckets. This is a great opportunity to add to your collection at a bargain rate before it all heads to the Franklin rock show. I know I'm looking forward to it!
