Annual Meeting and Log Inoculation Demo
Paul Bunyan Mushroom Club had our annual meeting on May 22 outdoors at the Helga Town Hall. We had a beautiful day for the meeting with great turn out of members excited for a new year of learning about mushrooms!
The meeting began with an inoculation event. Doug Gilbertson Michael Blassey talked about the process and guided members as they prepared their own logs to take home. Thank you to Doug for providing the logs and Michael for this fun event.
Outgoing President Gene Kremer led the meeting and reviewed the upcoming forays for this year.
Offices up for re-election were president and secretary. Steph Anderson will continue to act as secretary and Gene Kremer chose not to run for president. Paula Peters agreed to be interim president for a year as we work to find a new one. Many thanks to Gene Kremer for the work he put in as president and the many miles he put on attending forays, setting up meetings and finding interesting programs.
I look forward to seeing many of you this summer and enjoy being back in the woods again! Please check this website for upcoming foray details and membership information.
