ONCE YOU ARE A MEMBER
The extremely affordable membership dues barely cover the cost of printing and mailing The Nugget. Membership participation in keeping the club afloat is crucial, and to that end, we ask you to help out whenever you can. One of the ways is to purchase raffle tickets for prizes at the annual Fiesta of Gems show in July. For the 2010 show, over 60% of our members purchased lottery tickets. We are aiming for 100% for the 2011 show. Another way is to donate prizes to our silent auctions.

In addition, we always need volunteeers at our functions. The largest amount of help is always needed for the Fiesta of Gems, but there are also many other occasions where members' participation is needed.

RENEWAL
Current members who want to renew their membership by mail can download the Membership Application and mail it with their check.
