The KGMS Rock and Gem show is a big deal for us and it is a great event, but it cannot happen without help from it's members. There are many things you can do to help, like helping with:

  • Kids Games (critical need)

  • Geode Cracking

  • Silent Auction

  • Information Booth

  • Ticket Taking

  • Cashier

  • Vendor Help (taking water for vendors)

  • Petoskey Polishing Station

  • Gold Panning

  • Egg Carton Handouts

  • Specimen Table

  • Membership

  • Security

  • Setup & Breakdown (critical need)

  • Break Person - Give other workers breaks - (critical need)

  • and more.

Whatever it is and even if it's for a few hours here and there, every bit help makes this show one of the best in the area. You do not need any knowledge of rocks to volunteer.

All volunteers get a KGMS T-shirt, free admission to the show, a free membership good until Dec. 31st 2018 and will be entered to win a volunteer grand prize for working.
