The 2018 Annual Holiday Potluck Dinner & Member Meeting of The Arizona Mushroom Society, Inc., will be held Saturday, December 8th, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.
It will take place at the Maricopa County Extension Service Building, located at 4341 East Broadway in Phoenix, Arizona. The entrance (easy to miss in the dark) is on the South side of Broadway Rd, about 30 feet east of the Traffic Light at 43rd Place.
Door prizes, and plenty of them, will again be given out. Our member Beth Bilodeau does a terrific job bringing in these donations! Each attendee will get one ticket, and extra tickets for the raffle will also be available for $2 each, 3 for $5, or 7 for $10. We may also do a silent auction as some of the donations she has received for the Society are of considerable monetary value. Proceeds will support the Dr. Chester Leathers Educational Fund.
If you can, please bring a dish to share at the potluck according to the following assignment:
If your last name begins with letter Q-Z, please bring a salad or side dish; if A-H please bring a dessert; if I-P please bring a main dish.
Of course, please bring the proper utensil with which to serve the dish. If the dish is to be served hot, bring your own crock-pot, skillet, etc. and extension cord to be plugged in.
If you bring a dish containing wild-picked mushrooms, you should note that sharing of mushrooms between members is at the sole risk of the individuals involved, and should comply with the Society's published safety guidelines.
Coffee, soft drinks, ice, paper plates, cups and plastic utensils will be provided by the Club. The Club will also provide a cooked ham.
The guest speaker is yet to be determined but will be published here as soon as arrangements are made.
If you wish to nominate yourself or someone else for the Board of Directors, please inform the Society President and try to come to the meeting so you can tell the membership about your candidacy.
Speaking of volunteering, we will again be recruiting committee chairs and members at the meeting. Remember that this club is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that can only succeed via robust participation from its membership. Look over the various committee pages and think about where your talents might be best used.
If you have a photograph of an interesting mushroom or other fungus, or a dried specimen to display, or a mushroom-related work of art or handicrafts, feel free to bring that along to set up on our display table.
Mark your calendars for December 8th, 2018 and plan to attend the Winter Potluck!
