The Del Air Rockhounds Club Welcomes You!!





www.Facebook.com/DelAirRockhounds


The Del Air Rockhounds Club was founded in 1952 with members mostly residing in the San Fernando Valley area of California. Our club is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing knowledge of the lapidary arts and techniques, geology, mineralogy and related fields. We own our own lapidary equipment with members available to teach and demonstrate lapidary techniques to other members. Our members enjoy lapidary related programs, demonstrations, exhibitions, displays and lectures. We also take monthly field trips to our local deserts & mountains for exploration and the study and collection of lapidary and mineral specimens.

July 2017: The Del Air Annual Ice Cream & Bingo Social
                                                          Presented by: Your Board of Directors

The Del Air Board of Directors & Committee Chairs is once again proud to bring you our annual Ice Cream & Bingo Social. Every year, the month of July affords us the opportunity to get together for a delicious summer treat and play a few games of BINGO for fun and fabulous prizes (donated by the membership) before we break for the summer. We’ll play 7 or 8 various forms of bingo, time permitting. We’ll start with 4 games then break for ice cream sundaes and then play another 3 or 4 games when we return from break. Why not come join us for this fun filled annual event?
