Carson City’s Tobin Rupert to visit Leisure Hour Club March 16

Members of the Leisure Hour Club will share in the gem and jewelry creation expertise of Tobin Rupert at their dinner meeting on Wednesday, March 16. Rupert, a member of the Washoe Tribe, is a longtime resident of Carson City, having grown up in Northern

Nevada and receiving a business management degree from University of Nevada, Reno. His gem and jewelry design business is at 2800 S. Curry St.

Rupert’s grandfather told stories about welcoming the first white settlers to this region and about how the German name of Rupert was bestowed upon them since Native Americans had no last names. He works in Carson City as a gemologist, jewelry designer/maker, auto body and collision shop co-owner, and a frequent competitor in the annual Nevada Day single-jack drilling competition.

To attend, call Dorothy Link at 775-885-2542 no later than Thursday, March 10. The meeting is preceded by a buffet dinner at 6:30 p.m. in the Carson Nugget Capitol Ballroom. Reservations for the meeting and dinner are required.
