Welcome to the Marysville Rock & Gem Club
Our objective is to bring together those people who have chosen as their hobby, the collection of rocks, minerals, and fossils; the lapidary arts including jewelry-making; and methods of display, and to encourage the study of related earth sciences.
We welcome visitors at our meetings! Please join us!
We meet every second Tuesday of the month, at 7pm, with the exception of July. Read more
