The CVMC Holiday party is our next event at the December meeting. If you're wondering what goes on, here goes. Please bring a main dish, hot or cold dish, finger sandwiches, crock pot, dessert, cheese n crackers, veggie platter etc.

The gift swap is simple, if you want to receive a gift, you need to bring a gift. The gifts have to pertain to the hobby and must be labeled as a mineral specimen, fossil, or lapidary. If you are gifting a mineral specimen please make sure it is one you would enjoy getting yourself! The gifts must be wrapped and you do not need to put your name on the gift. If anyone has any questions about the party, please contact one of the officers and they will be happy to answer any questions you have.
