Mon, June 3, 2024  SAN DIEGO, CA – GSSD General Meeting

Sponsor:  Gemological Society of San Diego

Venue:  SDMG Bldg, at the back of Spanish Village in Balboa Park, San Diego

Hours:  7:00 pm

Admission:  Free. Open to the public.

Parking is limited behind the SDMG Bldg, so it's first come, first served. Look for additional parking in the Carousel parking lot near Park Blvd. or in the Zoo parking lot.

The June meeting is our semi-annual Silent Auction. We will have a brief meeting, the silent auction, and where we usually have finger foods, let's just make it a "bring what you like" and would like to share. The silent auction is open to everyone and you can bring your homemade goods, raw material, cut stones, tools, books, magazines, specimens. We've even had a few plants and fun things as well, and of course bring money! At the end of the meeting everything is tallied up by each seller and everything but a mere 10% is yours to keep on the items that you sell. Silent Auction slips and pencils provided. Cash and checks gladly accepted.

We are moving ahead with the merger of GSSD into SDMG. When we return from the summer break we will be the Gemological Division of San Diego Mineral & Gem Society. There are many advantages to this merger. Although the dues may increase, many of you are already members of SDMG.

To all of our members, new and old, thank you for all your support of GSSD throughout the years. We will work on the possibility of a new beginning and first-year class this Fall. We will meet every other month once the Fall session begins. Jim Parrish hopes to start up the Mineral Division, and we can look forward to attending his meetings as well.
