Big Welcome to Dr. M. Catherine Aime, our speaker at the Winter Luncheon 2020.
“She is the most exciting woman mycologist in the world right now” –Britt Bunyard
We are happy to be invited back this year to the Missouri Civil War Museum in Jefferson Barracks. Entrance to the museum is included with your admission. The Luncheon is held next door in the 1918 Exchange Building. Space is limited to 100 and this event has the largest number of MOMS members and their guests attending. If you find you are able to attend after the deadline, you must contact Registration Chair, Renee Bomanz, to check on availability (314-503-6837). No one will be admitted without a reservation. You will receive an email to confirm receipt of your reservation. At the luncheon, we’ll check you in as you arrive. Volunteers will be needed to set up at 11am. If you’d be so kind, on the form, please indicate your willingness to help.
Be sure to bring a dish that you are proud to share…and is enough to share. Bring an entrée, appetizer, side, salad, or dessert. Please also provide an index card with the name of your dish, its ingredients or the recipe (to alert those with food restrictions), and your name (so we can tell you how delicious it is!) Bring an extension cord if you require electricity to keep it hot. There is no cooking or food prep on site. Bring your own drinks. Alcohol is okay. Homemade beer, wine, and other concoctions are very welcome. The club provides hot tea, water, ice, and coffee. We ask you to bring your own tableware, silverware and glassware. It’s sustainable and it’s fun to see the mix of china.
Renee Bomanz, our auction organizer, is counting on you to bring auction items like dried morels, field guides, baskets, artwork and jewelry. We’ll also have donated items such as restaurant gift certificates, wine, soap and more. When the bidding closes, if you are the highest bidder, you’ll own what you fancy. Don’t forget your checkbook or cash to purchase your winnings.
