? WHEN: 10/18/2023, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
? WHERE: Clubhouse at Harvey West Park

Please join us for our October meeting at the Harvey West Club House. 

The evening will start at 6:30 pm for those who would like to socialize, snack on Bob Wynn's fantastic spread and chat with fellow mycophiles before the main meeting. Bring any fungi you have been lucky enough to find for identification! Business and announcements will start at 7:00 pm. After the business part of the meeting, we will be joined by Todd Spanier, our speaker for the evening.

We don't know yet if he will be speaking about last year's epic mushroom season or the one coming up this year.

Todd started his obsession with foraging wild mushrooms at the early age of five through the guidance of his Italian grandfather aka Nonno ”Ed Marcellini”. The obsession for foraging wild mushrooms quickly became a passion. In 1996 Todd founded Re Dei Funghi aka King of Mushrooms, which has become one of the bay area's leading mushroom purveyors to gourmet grocery stores and top chefs. Together with his wife Cristina, they are happy to celebrate their 27 years of business with King of Mushrooms.
