There comes a time when you have to take a moment in your life and reflect on those people that made you feel good, even if it was for just one day or an entire year for that matter. I have met a lot of wonderful and interesting people since I have joined OMS a little over three years ago. I have witnessed several people come and go throughout many of our forays in those years, many of which provided a wealth of knowledge and insight to my mycological fascination. So this year, I decided I would start finally express those OMS members that made our club not only exciting this past year, but insightful and fun for many of us. I personally give thanks to…
Hugh Urban and Nancy Jesser for bringing a multitude of fungi knowledge on species to our mini-forays, being completely organized in the field, and knowledge some of the best hunting grounds for edibles in Ohio. Plus some excellent photos along the way! Welcome back long time members!
Karen Kelley and Mike Nagy for being the most dedicated OMS members in attendance to this very day. The guys I always enjoy seeing as they never miss an OMS foray! Plus, they travel all over the States for other larger Fungi related events and cultivate several varieties of edibles throughout the year.
Nicolas Copely for his intensity of hunting for wild edibles in Ohio and knowledge and some awesome spots in central Ohio. Plus one of our most ambitious new members to say the least with a vast knowledge in edible plants, berries and herbs.
And lastly, but certainly not in the least. The truest of true Ohio fungiphiles and a lifetime of dedication and knowledge to Ohio Mushroom Society—Dick Grimm! Thank you again for your stellar interview for all of us to enjoy!
Board members and members alike, feel free to continue the appreciation along in our comments box below to this post!
