Meetings

Meetings are currently being held online via Zoom - see below

COVID-19 Update

There will be no Society General Meetings held at the Parramatta and Holroyd Lapidary Club until further notice, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This applies to all other Society activities including field trips, and any other societies or lapidary club activities, shows, sales events previously announced and scheduled including open-air events such as the Gemboree and the Canberra Rock Swap (all of which are cancelled).

However, general meetings will be held using Zoom. This is a simple and free program, similar to Skype. To use it, members need to have an email address (so they can be sent the meeting link), and also have a computer or tablet that has sound. If you can watch and hear a news video on your computer, you should be able to view the meeting just fine in your own homes.

Visitors interested in attending the meeting should send an email through on the Contact page to request an invitation.

Monthly meetings

The society meets on the first Friday of each month (excluding January), unless that Friday is a public holiday or before a long weekend, in which case the meeting is on the second Friday.

Meetings start at 7.30pm. Visitors are very welcome

Location

In normal circumstances, meetings are held in the clubrooms of the Parramatta Holroyd Lapidary Club at 73 Fullagar Rd, Wentworthville.

Upcoming program

The following list of meeting programs will be presented online via the ‘Zoom’ facility until ‘live’ meetings can be re-instated. Members are emailed a link to the Zoom meeting prior to each meeting.

The precise arrangements for the Christmas Social are still to be confirmed although the expectation is that it will be held in the grounds of the Parramatta and Holroyd Lapidary Club on Fullagar Road, Wentworthville. Unfortunately it may be that some pandemic restrictions may still be applied to a degree and the interior of the Club building may not be available for use.
