We’re Finally Buzzing Again

We finally had the opportunity to meet again for the last several months at the Farmer’s Museum following our suspension in March of 2020 due to Covid-19. Those on our e-mail list had been notified and we elected new officers and re-established our Education Committee. We will continue to meet the 4th Thursday of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 as long as we are permitted (mask wearing and social distancing required). All are welcome to join us to learn together and share beekeeping experiences. On October 28th, Jeff Barnes will remind us of the preparations needed to winterize our hives. Hope to see you there!

Our new officers are:

President Mike Lyons
