BEE THERE OR BEE SQUARE!
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!
