The Morris Museum Mineralogical Society (MMMS) was founded in 1971 to promote interest and education in the various earth sciences and, in particular, the subjects of geology, mineralogy, paleontology, lapidary and related subjects.
The MMMS holds meetings monthly except in July and August. Most meetings feature a speaker who delivers an illustrated lecture, and topics are suitable for all ages. Members receive and are welcome to contribute to a monthly newsletter, and the club may sponsor a field trip or two per year.
The society also hosts two mineral shows yearly: the Annual Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Show is held the first Saturday in August and Rock and Mineral Weekend is a three day even held on Thanksgiving weekend at the Museum.
