a1On December 7th, we will be holding our annual special  Christmas celebration, just like last year. The December meeting will take place at the usual place; the Knox United Church Meeting Hall, 2569 Midland Avenue beginning at 8:00 pm. It will feature a Christmas Party and a celebration of a successful year.  This social event is a great time to meet and mingle, catch up with old friends and meet new ones. 

As usual there will be silent auction tables. So bring a bit of cash and pick up something you don’t have.  Or you can put a few of your own items on the silent auction tables.  Remember all proceeds go the donor.  Also you may book a table to sell a few things you’ve made or collected. Or you can demonstrate your craft at the table you have booked. No Charge for the table; but book early.   All proceeds from the sales tables are yours to keep.

You will be able to buy raffle tickets for a few items, and maybe win a prize or two. Tickets are 50 cents each or $5.00 a yard.   And there are still some very good bargains to be had,; from the estate of the late Melita Scheffel as well.

 All those who attend will asked to bring your favourite Christmas snack. Please label your items as there someone with food allergies. Beverages will be provided by the club. You are also encouraged to donate a non-perishable item for the local food bank. We will also be collecting craft items for the Sick Kids Hospital. Giving is part of the Christmas spirit.

You Must Sign up for a sales table and/or a Demo Table because we don’t have room for very many tables.  If you’re a member of the Gem and Mineral Club of Scarborough (Join tonight) and you wish to sell or demonstrate at our Christmas party , please register by Comtacting  Blair  Click Here  Please note it’s advisable to register early because of limited space. Each member will be given a half table at no cost.

    • We meet in the Church Hall which is the building north of KnoxUnitedChurch.
    • To get to the Hall: When driving north on Midland just past Sheppard, you will pass the church which is on the corner. Then keep you eye out for a small laneway that runs south of the Hall. This leads to the parking lot behind (east) of the Hall.
      If you miss the laneway, keep going till you hit a small street on your right (east) called Rural Ave. Turn right (east) and look for a driveway into the Church Hall parking lot.
    • The door to the Hall is visible from the parking lot. The door is propped open for the meetings. Come in the door & walk up a half a flight of stair into the hall.

I would like take this opportunity to extend an special invitation invitation to anybody in the area who has an interest in rocks, minerals, fossils, jewellery to come out to our meeting in December. Guests and member of the public are welcome.
