2020 MMS Calendars now available

UPDATE 1/18/20: All calendars are sold out.

We now have MMS calendars for 2020 at $10 each! All photos come from our members’ recent photo contest entries, many of them prize winners.

These calendars will be on sale at upcoming meetings and other events until gone. They can also be had by placing an order – either for pick up at events or for mail delivery (add $3.00 for postage & handling).

MMS calendars will make great Christmas gifts! Profits will help to fund the Marek Scholarship. To place an order and arrange pickup or delivery, contact John Lamprecht at jml313@aol.com.

MMS members: Mark your calendars!

The deadline for our members to submit photos to our annual photo contest is fast approaching – October 31 at midnight. See this year’s contest rules and submittal instructions: 2019 MMS Photo Contest Rules. Voting will take place at the December 10th meeting, and awards will be announced at our annual Awards Banquet on February 15. Get ready to learn more about our local fungal diversity and enjoy some beautiful photography! Remember, you must be a member to submit photos and vote for your favorites. However, guests are welcome to attend the voting meeting and view all contest entries.

Another special annual event is coming up on October 28 – our MMS Potluck, Raffle and Silent Auction. This is another members-only event where you can share your favorite mushroom dish, or just your favorite dish sans mushrooms if you like! Only certain wild mushroom species can be incorporated, or you can use store bought mushrooms. Check out the event on our calendar for more details.
