Mushroom Events in 2014
Please note that the rest of our meetings for the year are on Sunday.
Sunday, September 21 Potluck and mushroom walk at the Union County Sportsmans Club 1 pm.
|CPMC was organized in 2010, and had a very busy first four years with many accomplishments. If you paid your 2013 dues before our September 23rd meeting, you need to pay your $20.00 dues for 2014. Its easy to renew and pay by PayPal (although the Club will receive your entire payment if you pay in cash at a club event, or send a check to our PO Box). Click here to pay 2014 dues using PayPal, or for more information about how to become a continuing or new member of CPMC. If you've already paid your dues for 2014, thanks!|
* Dates and places are subject to change if mushrooms fruit in an area we'd rather visit! Be sure to check this web site a few days before our scheduled event to be sure no change has been made!

Take a gander at two of his recent finds and eat your hearts out!!!
