2015 PSMS Survivors' Banquet & Annual Business Meeting

Banchetto Italiano!   Attendee Limit has been reached. Please see waiting list.

Saturday March 7th – 7:30pm (Doors open at 6:30pm) at the Center for Urban Horticulture 

Our theme for the 2015 Survivors’ Banquet and yearly business meeting is “Banchetto Italiano!”  Our last Italian themed banquet was in 2005…and was a big hit!  We would encourage you to bring potluck dishes in line with Italian Cuisine.  The cost is $5/person, and the banquet is members only.  If your significant other or dinner partner is not a member you can still invite them, but the event is closed to the public because we will be having a banquet permit for alcohol at the event. You may bring your favorite wine or beer! No hard liquor!

Remember this banquet on Saturday replaces our general meeting for March.

Speaker for the Survivor's Banquet will be  James "Animal" Nowak

Topic: A Taste Of New World Truffles.
A short presentation on Northwest edible truffles will be presented. 
Habitat and collecting techniques and will be covered and will be 
accompanied by truffle tasting for both your edification and delight.

Bio: James Nowak grew up in the Seattle area foraging mushrooms 
on family outings which instilled in him a love of everything mushroom.

mushroom cultivation and guided forays (http://www.terra-fleurs.com/). 
He also has a deep interest in truffles, has planted an orchard to grow truffles 
and has trained his own dog to find truffles. Currently James sits on the board
