Welcome to the online home of the Mobile Rock and Gem Society(MRGS) a 501(c)(3) Organization! We are happy to have visitors to our webpage and invite you to come and join us in person at a meeting. The Society meets at our Clubhouse at 1324 Forest Dell Road off Moffet Road (Hwy 98) in Mobile, Alabama (next door to Forest Dell Elementary School). We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm. The typical agenda for a meeting begins with old business (like officer and committee reports), then on to new business (like introducing new members and guests, miscellaneous business items, upcoming events and field trips, etc.). After that there is "show and tell" before the program begins. The program usually includes a lecture (by a member or guest speaker), a demonstration of some sort, a video or a workshop. Since the presentation will vary greatly, some will include only a few of these components and some will involve a little of everything! After the program ends, the meeting is adjourned and we have refreshments and socializing. At this time everyone has the opportunity to ask questions, tell stories, discuss upcoming events or possible activities and make new friends. Membership is open to anyone 9 years old or older who is interested in Lapidary, Mineralogy, Paleontology, or other related Earth Sciences.
