We would like to Thank everyone who came to the Picnic and everyone who brought the yummy sides to the Picnic also!


It was very warm the day of the picnic but we had a great turnout and everyone

had a great time and learned a lot on the tour of the bee yard!


The fish in the pond also were grateful for the food they received.


There were a lot of great items raffled off!


We would like to thank  the Meyers  for having the picnic at their house and

working so hard to make the picnic a huge success!  This is the second year they

have Hosted  the picnic and taken the time to do a wonderful tour of their bee yard.
