Welcome to Our Web Site
Our group, a non-profit corporation, was formed for educational and instructive purposes,
to foster the collection and study of minerals, to disseminate knowledge about them, to
sponsor field trips to find them, to encourage the use of them in lapidary and faceting
studies, etc. and to have a good time doing those things among friends and family.
We are located in the western San Fernando Valley in the city of Los
Angeles, California. Regular meetings are held on the 3rd Saturday of
each month at 7:00 PM at the First United Methodist Church, 22700
Sherman Way, West Hills, CA, 91307. Guests are always welcome to attend.
Admission to our meetings and parking are free. The well lit parking lot is at the rear of
the large Fellowship Hall.off Maynard Ave. on the East side of the property.
Enter the Fellowship Hall from the parking lot. If the door is closed, ring the door bell.
