Welcome to the Clallam County Gem and Mineral Association [CCGMA]. The CCGMA is a nonprofit corporation organized for the purpose of creating, developing, and encouraging interest in the rock, gem, and mineral hobbies as well as locating and identifying various material through field trips.Our club is one of the few gem and mineral clubs to have its very own workshop, where our members have the use of many types of equipment to practice and perfect their lapidary skills. It also allows us to teach those skills to many newcomers to the hobby. In addition our club has classes on wire wrapping, faceting, chain making and silversmithing. We have creative learning activities for all ages. Each Fall, we sponsor a Gem and Mineral show here in Sequim, Washington.
Notes of interest to all members:
We are encouraging everyone to attend the 21 October meeting at 7:00 p.m. at ”The Fifth Avenue” in Sequim. We currently need to fill the Secretary and Treasure positions for the next year. Please think seriously about volunteering for either one of these important positions. If we don’t fill these positions, there may be NO CLUB. If there is no club there will be no lapidary shop. Hope to see you there. Thanks. CCGMA Board of Directors.
