As the Old Mission Peninsula continues to mourn the loss of agricultural icon Josh Wunsch, who recently passed away after a massive stroke, there’s now a date for a memorial gathering.

A celebration of Josh’s life will take place on Saturday, May 19, 1 p.m. at the Wunsch farm on the Old Mission Peninsula. Take Peninsula Drive north past Kroupa Road. Turn left on Phelps Road, then right on Wunsch Road. Follow the road back to the Wunsch farmhouse, and that’s where the gathering will be held.

I talked with Josh’s wife Barb last week, and she said they really wanted to wait until the summer farm crew arrived before having the memorial service.

Barb also said that while there will be tents set up with tables and chairs, it might be a good idea for folks to bring lawn chairs in case they’re needed. I’ll also add that carpooling is probably a good idea, too.
