Volunteer Jobs for the 2024 Show

The Show Committee has carefully selected about 45 quality dealers to bring a balanced variety of merchandise to appeal to as many people as possible and at reasonable prices. There will be tools, raw materials, and books for the hobbyist, many mineral and fossil specimens for the collector, and jewelry ranging from fun-to wear to the finest opals, diamonds and emeralds.

The show is oriented for the whole family!  Special demonstrations of lapidary work are included for the entertainment of all show patrons. Do not assume you know what is at the show for extra activities because it was 'there last year'. Due to the continuing need to upgrade and keep up with community needs, readers should check back at this web page prior to the show for the latest updates. The CLGMS is proud to provide continuing educational activities for everyone that are fun and a part of learning.

An excellent special program for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts that allows them to get first hand material that helps with Geology related merit badges is now a continuing part of every show. Trina will be there to instruct you.  In addition the CLGMS strives to present a varied amount of activities that are attractive to children.


Special Events - We have scheduled a special demonstration by The Dinosaur Guy.
We also have the Rock Food Table.

Demonstrations - Another special club sponsored table provides demonstrations by the Clear Lake Gem and Mineral Society Club Members on Cabochon Making, Rock Tumbling, and Jewelry Making.
Also, a local merchant or club member may be available to identify your gemstones, minerals and/or fossils at the Demonstration table.
