What's happening at the meeting coming soon.
See you there!
It's going to be another great meeting
Bee There Or Bee Square!
We had another wonderful meeting last night and learned a lot!
We did something different - a sheet on Facts about Honey Bees which
you didn't know!
We learned what happens to Honey Bees in the Winter.
We saw pictures of a Hive who chose to build outside not in a hive and
what it looked like after the cut out. They are much happier now in the
hive. They were not going to make it much longer where they were.
It was late Oct. when they were put into a hive.
We had a wonderful election and we have some new officers!
Robin Smith remained President
Dave Golaszewski is the new Vice President
We have Co - Secretaries
Cindy Shroba & Kelly Frymire
Sheri Stumreiter remained Treasurer
We would like to Thank Deb Dye for her 5 years of service as
secretary! We will miss her choice of questions.
We would also like to Thank Stephine for her service last year as
Vice President - We hope the new job lets you come to as many meetings
I would like to Thank Everyone who brought a dish to pass for
the Pot Luck! Everything was delicious!
We raffled off some large items for the end of the year meeting!
We raffled off a Full Hive, Package of Bees, Gift Certificates, Nucs,
Candy Boards, EZ Hive Wraps, New mite test kit with CO2 - smokers,
New Plastic Screen Bottom Boards, and a few smaller items. Everyone was lucky! We had a great time!
We are all looking forward to next year. Please Join us!
HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
