Non profit Annual gem and mineral show preparations for March 2020

Tualatin Valley Gem Club, wishes everyone a very healthy, safe and happy holidays.

When we come back for our first meeting in the new year it will also be time to start thinking of our annual show. This show helps our non profit club to pay for things such as meeting space, programs and more. Last year, people enjoyed the displays, vendors and kids corner. It’s not too early to start thinking about our new displays and games for kids corner.

Below is our new flyer for the show and please contact me through the website if you would like some additional paper flyers to post at places, or if you would like a jpeg file of the flyer, as this is for official press release.
