A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
July 29, 2015
Hello to All,
As was promised to us, the weather has warmed, the flowers are in full bloom, and the bees are prospering. These are busy times for both the bees and the keepers. Packages and nucs have been received and many of us are experiencing beekeeping for the first time. In part overwhelming, and in part a true pleasure.
We end the summer with our annual picnic held at the Bethlehem community park on Thursday, August 20 at 6:00 pm. The club will supply chicken and members are asked to bring goodies of their choice. This has proven to be a fun time, allowing us to meet very informally and enjoy conversation. In the past, that conversation often strays far from beekeeping.
We have experienced a tremendous increase in interest and numbers, and as a result we hope to further expand our functions to allow each of us to continue to grow as beekeepers and continue to serve the community by fostering an appreciation of the honey bee.
I look forward to seeing you all at coming events…
