Monthly Meetings

Meetings are usually held at 8:00 PM on the second Friday of each month ( except July & August ) at the Sharon Centre Auditorium, located in Sharon Woods Park.  There is a Cincinnati Mineral Juniors (kids group) meeting at 7:30 pm before the general meeting. The park's entrance is on Lebanon Road (US-42) between Reading and Kemper Roads.

After a short business meeting we have a guest speaker.  Topics presented by the speakers cover a wide variety of educational subjects in the field of mineralogy and earth science.

Free parking is available after you obtain an annual $10.00 county park sticker.
