TGMS Show i s an invi t ational Show, where we in­vite Deal­ers & Demon­stra­tors to dis­play and sel l thei r rock slabs, rock re­lated items and lap­idary equip­ment so people can make the i r own creat ions. The dealer s and demonst ra­tors are will­ing to help people know what they need to do to get star ted mak­ing their own. People who came to the show could also buy f in­ished prod­ucts such as neck­laces, cabo­chons, knapped knives and decor at ive items. Thanks to those who at­tended the last show.

Be­sides the an­nual show, the club holds monthly meet­ings where mem­bers can lear n f rom old t ime mem­ber s and lear n f rom var ious pro­grams . There is also a si lent auc­tion ta­ble where mem­bers can buy their own rocks and have fun as­so­ci­at­ing with each other. These monthly meet ings are held at the Spr in­gvi l le Se­nior Cit izens Cen­ter at 65 East 200 South.

Those at­tend­ing the Ju­nior Meet­ings are also mem­bers of the reg­u­lar meet­ings.
