January updates

March Show

It is unlikely the March Rock and Gem show at the Da Vinci centre will go ahead in 2021. We may look at re-scheduling it later in the year, but that will depend on many factors – check back here for updates.

Membership

The BCLS has rolled 2020 memberships over into 2021 for no charge and the VLMS will do the same. New VLMS membership cards have been snail-mailed on Jan 6th; if you don’t receive yours within a couple of weeks, please email membership@vlms.ca.

The membership list has been submitted to the BCLS and when those membership cards are received they will also be snail-mailed out to members. Those who have requested and paid for a hard copy of the members’ directory will receive them at the same time.

Workshop

At this time we still do not have access to the workshop at Silver Threads

Field trips

At this time (due to both Covid and weather) we are not running field trips.

Calendar

The 2021 calendar can be previewed here. I have two unsold copies, available for $25 each, please email web@vlms.ca if you would like to purchase them.

AGM, Board of Directors and Appointed Positions

It had been decided to continue with the same Board of Directors and appointed positions as 2020, until we can safely organize an in-person AGM for the club membership to vote on positions.
