We would like to Thank everyone who came to the Meeting and those who brought the yummy treats also!

We had a wonderful meeting which included a talk on the flow hive - pros and cons - and an explanation of how it works.

We had a very informative talk on getting your bees ready for winter and feeding them to get them ready also.  Now is also the time to test and or treat so your winter bees can bee all they can bee and live as long as possible! 

And as always we learn so much from the wonderful bee questions!

Next meeting will be time again to elect the officers for the coming year.
