Our annual Gem & Jewelry Show is our major fundraiser. Our current financial goal is to raise enough money to establish a workshop in our clubhouse in Tyler, Texas. Our clubhouse is a permanent place for equipment that has been donated to the club, and a place to hold classes and group meetings. . All donations to ETGMS are tax deductible. Maybe one day a benefactor will come along and speed us to that goal. Until then, we will keep chugging ahead.

Field Trips keep our members in-touch with nature and it's bounty of treasures. Field Trips are only open to current members.

Our sub groups are in-depth focus for specific areas of interest. It brings together novice and expert alike, who have the same interests. It gives members the opportunity to collect specimens, learn about how they are formed, and perhaps how to make them into wearable art.
