PRESIDEN'I"S MESSAGE: Is it October already? That means it is time to get ready for our
Open House (November 11th) and our Armual Show (March 2nd a.Dd 3rd).
   Billie and Allen Ashley will be our Co,-Hosts for the Open House this year. They wi.ll
be needing help on the saws and wheeL:; in the Lapidary Shop, help in the Jewelry Room, in
the Library) et cetera. So, if you would like to help, contact the Ashleys.
   Anyone who is planning to put a case in our show (and you ALL should), remember, all
cases MUST be wired for 3-wire. We could use help to rewire the club cases. We will get
the material, but it is just too time,-consmn:ing for just one or two to do all of them. If
you are going to use a club case) and cOIJ.Id possibly rewire the case yourself, it would be
a big help. I keep saying "we" when I should say Jim G1iebe. See him about helping.
   See y'ou at the next meeting. Jim Ewing.
