Secretary Report: requested a paper shredder for the mall, thank you to Harold for donating a shredder for use at the mall, you rock!

Treasurer Report: March was busy! 36 club transactions, 17 new memberships from the show, we were able to cover all costs associated with the show and even made bank deposits.

General feedback is that dealers were very happy with the show, Wes went over numbers from this year vs. last year. We had about 2/3 the number of visitors, but sales were up.

Thank you to everyone who helped with loading, unloading, set up, tear down, and putting away the items in the conex on Monday.

2025 Show dates: Set up 3/28/25, show 3/29 & 3/30/25. Speaking of, we need a new show chair for next year. Please consider volunteering, it’s a great way to get to know other members and contribute to the club.

RRR: Upcoming in September, on 9/28/24 is an event where any club member can reserve a table to sell their rock-related wares.

Federation: nothing to report
