Yes, There’s a Mushroom Club

Right here in Western Pennsylvania. A Mushroom Club.

“A club is an association of two or more people united by a common interest or goal.”There are all sorts of clubs in the community.  But I’d never heard of this one/ have you?  Maybe you belong to a club, but I bet not too many readers belong to a Mushroom Club. 

There is a Club Species Life List available with photographs on their web page. I had no idea there were so many varieties of fungi.

Excuse me sir, but might I photograph your t-shirt? (click)  Thank you.

Here is the link to the Western Pennsylvania Mushroom Club webpage.

“The Western Pennsylvania Mushroom Club was created to promote the enjoyment, study, and exchange of information about wild mushrooms.  Everyone who has an interest in wild mushrooms is welcome to become a member.”

If you live in the area, there is a list of upcoming events.

Making Kettle Korn at Fleatique

People at Work series. Sunday morning at Fleatique-Tarentum PA, 

A former colleague, Jen, called yesterday evening to see if I wanted to go to Fleatique and I’d never been.  Jen’s  been going since her daughter was in a stroller and she’s now headed to High School in the fall.

Meet Dustin Hall. Two Korny Kettle Korn. 

You’ll find him at Festivals, Fund Raisers, Arts and Craft Shows, Car Shows, Bazaars and Charity Events.  He gets the kettles from a place in Ohio and he told me they are not old as I thought.  It’s hot work.  His son and daughter help him at his booth.IMG_0564
