Our December meeting will be the annual MGMC Christmas party and gift exchange. Members are encouraged to bring a rock, mineral, fossil, or other gift related to our hobby to exchange with other members in the club. Your gift doesn't need to be fancy or expensive but it should be something that you would like to receive as a gift yourself.
Guests are welcome and do not need to bring anything. Gifts will be provided to our guests as a way to say Merry Christmas and to share the holiday spirit.
We will also have our annual "Tasty Bee". Bring your favorite snack to share. Drinks will be provided.
As always, guests are welcome and encouraged. Come and enjoy refreshments, fellowship, and interesting presentations on rocks, minerals, fossils, and anything related to geology. Also sign up for door prizes given away each month!
