President’s Message

President’s Message December 28, 2021


We made it through another year and came out the other end near normal, holding meetings, metal detecting, having parties and outings. Thank you to all who contributed to make the Christmas Party it’s usual fun gathering with good food, good friends and a good time. 47 members showed up and I think the final count for the gift exchange game was 32.
Also special thanks to Jerry Goldstein for his really spectacular end of the year All Gold and Silver special raffle. I know quite a few of you were on the winning end of the tickets.
We have a full year of activities planned staring off with the General Meeting on Jan. 5th, Metal Detecting on the 9th at South Carlsbad Beach, Frank’s Detecting returns on the 16th at Mission Beach in the afternoon to take advantage of the low tide, and an outing to our Friendly Fox claim 15-17, weather permitting. It’s been hard to predict the rain for the last several weeks and into the third week of the month. Also of interest are the events that now happen out at Quartzsite from now through the end of February. The Gem and Mineral Show, famous swap meets, and Gold Show.
Before closing out this month
I would like to recognize Charlene Myers for her 15+ years of service to the Association. She has decided to scale back her role to that of a regular member and has passed off her many chores to others. Things like Editor of the Finders Keepers, membership committee, the monthly powerpoint presentation and agenda, filling in with the claims for the last 2 years, and keeping the Board informed and on track. It quite literally is taking 4 people to fill her shoes.
Thank you Charlene for your constant help.
I’ll see you all at one of our events this month

Continue to call or e-mail me for the latest information. I will post any changes here as well.
