A Mushroom Club Potluck!
The 1st Annual Central Oregon Mushroom Club
“Winter Survivor’s Potluck” and Membership Drive.
You are cordially invited to attend the Central Oregon Mushroom Club potluck dinner on Friday evening, January 30, from 6 to 8 PM at the Sunrise Village Community Center, 19560 Sunshine Way, Bend OR 97701.
Since this is a mushroom club meal, you are highly encouraged to use mushrooms, especially wild mushrooms, in your potluck item. If you have no dried, frozen, or fresh mushrooms in your pantry, then regular store-bought will do. At the potluck, you will need to fill out a label with the mushroom you put in your dish and any other pertinent information (dairy-free, nut-free, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, etc.) No raw mushrooms. Julie says she will provide a large fresh vegetable salad as a staple accompaniment to our mushroom dishes.
Our evening will start off with a “Mushroom Club Mixer” game where you can win prizes while socializing.
There will be disposable plates, tableware and cups available. We can have alcohol at the site, so if you would like to share a bottle of wine with dinner, you are welcome to bring it.
The current steering committee members will man the mushroom club membership table, where you can pay your yearly dues of $20 per person and $30 for a couple or a family. The money is used to rent spaces for meetings and events such as this, pay speakers and costs for our 9 monthly meetings, purchase supplies (nametags, etc.,) maintain the blogsite, and any other expenses the steering committee deems appropriate.
We need to have a RSVP from you to get a general count of how many will be coming no later than Tues. Jan. 27. Please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of people who will attend. If you can help set up, or especially clean up, we can use extra hands. Let us know if you are available.
This is our first social/membership drive event! Please come and meet other mushroom maniacs like you! Central Oregon Mushroom Club is happening!
