Welcome to the NEW on-line home of the Mobile Rock & Gem Society!
Pardon our progress...still under construction.
MRGS is a 503(c) non-profit organization dedicated to stimulating interest in earth sciences and supporting the education of geology, mineralogy, lapidary arts, and related subjects.
Membership is open to anyone age seven and up who is interested in Lapidary, Mineralogy, Paleontology, or other related Earth Sciences.
The Society meets at our Clubhouse at 1324 Forest Dell Road off Moffet Road (Hwy 98) in Mobile, Alabama (next door to Forest Hill Elementary School). We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm.
The typical meeting begins with program or guest speaker (about 30 minutes). Then we move on the some club business (officer and committee reports), and any new business (like introducing new members and guests, upcoming events and field trips, etc.). After that there is "show and tell" before adjourning the meeting.
After the meeting ends, we start the silent auction and have refreshments and socialize. At this time everyone has the opportunity to ask questions, tell stories, discuss upcoming events or possible activities and make new friends.
