Happy New Year! See you in January!
We had a lot of fun at the November Meeting!
We had a question and answer period and welcomed the new visitors.
Instead of us asking questions we asked our members if they had any
questions and we answered them as best as we could.
The election went well and the outcome is as follows.
Robin Smith retained the Presidents position
Debby Dye retained the secretaries position - she does such a good job with the minutes and the bee questions!
Sherri moved from the VP position to Treasurer - we are hoping Bob can bee her mentor!
We elected a new Vice President - Stephanie Nelson - we welcome
the fresh face and possibly fresh ideas from newer members.
We would like to Thank Bill Cunico for stepping in when Bob was unable
take care of the treasury position. We hope Bob continues to recover and
will be back with us in the near future!
We had a wonderful potluck with a lot of yummy food.
The raffle was awesome with a lot of nice stuff raffled off.
Congratulations are in order for Dave Meyer - he has been elected to be
the Northern Illinois Rep for the Illinois State Beekeepers Association. We
know he will do a very good job and keep us posted about what is happening in the state.
Both the Candy Boards and Pollen Patties will be available at Meyer bees in Minooka later in November. Hive wraps are also available at Meyer Bees.
