Support for the Lapidary Arts
We need money to upgrade our workroom, which dates from the 1960s with equipment that has reached its limits of being successfully repaired. The money will be used to purchase new grinding wheels, rock saws, upgrade the electrical and plumbing systems and to upgrade the facility to accomodate people with physical limitations. We need the money as soon as possible, as we are hoping to make the workroom safe and the equipment up-to-date to attract artists and persons wanting to gain these skills, whether first or second career-oriented, hobbyists, or persons wanting to gather in this diverse community.
Getting funding for these upgrades means a lot to us, as our volunteers have worked hard to maintain the aging infrastructure and tools in our clubhouse. We hope to draw more people into this field, which, of course, is our passion. We also encourage people to come to our open houses and to our annual show, generally held in August at the Hall of Flowers at Golden Gate park, where you can see the work of our all-volunteer club to promote the jewelry and lapidary arts! Thank you for considering helping us reach our goals.
speaking of that, to all who have donated, you ROCK!
