The Arizona Mushroom Club is a social organization. The members include professional mycologists as well as novices. Members partake in outings to find fungi, identify the fungi and enjoy the edible fruits of Arizona’s fungi. We have forays in the Spring for morels. That is followed in the summer and early fall forays in the mountains for the many edible mushroom species that grow there. Training meetings are held when there is a demand. The year is capped with an annual pot-luck in December where Club business is conducted. Membership in our Club is open to all except those who have a commercial interest in edible mushrooms.
Due to a scheduling problem the Annual Holiday Potluck of The Arizona Mushroom Club will be held Thursday, December 11th, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. 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.
Three FREE turkey or ham certificates will be given to the winners of the Door Prize drawing.
Be sure to bring a dish to share at the potluck according to the following assignment:
If your last name begins with letters A-H, please bring a salad; if I-P please bring a dessert, ; if Q-Z please bring a main dish.
Of course, please bring the proper utensil with which to serve the dish, SPOON, TONGS, and FORK etc. If the dish is to be served hot, bring your own crock-pot, skillet, etc. and extension cord to be plugged in.
Coffee, soft drinks, ice, paper plates, cups and plastic utensils will be provided by the Club. The Club will also provide a cooked ham.
Our program for the evening will be informative as usual!
Other activities for the meeting are now in the planning stages, so you will have to attend to enjoy them. Our AMC Potlucks have always been an enjoyable way to recap the years activities, and give you a chance to win a free turkey or ham for the Holiday Season.
If you have a photograph of an interesting mushroom or other fungus (or dried specimen to display) feel free to bring that along to set up on our display table.
Mark your calendars for December 11th, 2014 and plan to come!
