We had a GREAT meeting with Jamie and Mike from Beeyond the hive. We learned so much about disease and many other questions were answered! We did not have time for Jamie to get into the harvest, but hopefully at a later date.
At our last meeting it was decided to just accept donations of about $20 to put in a kitty for expenses and if we have a large expense we can ask for more donations. I will keep a running list of who donates and what our balance is. It would still help to have the membership forms completed as this will give us an idea of interests etc of our members. I know Carol & Jim took the traveling beekeeper to dinner and if you can let me know the amount I will get the money to you to reimburse. We will talk about a 501C at a later date, as we do not have the manpower right now to do this.
If you would like to donate, please bring to meeting or you can mail to me at:
87 E Zabrisky Lane
Howard, Co 81233
Thanks everyone and let me know if any other suggestions fo the September meeting!
Happy almost fall!!!
Bee-Supplement-FeedCCBA beekeeping class 020715 flyerOur next meeting will be Monday February 9th at 6:30 at Crest Acadamy on 12TH & G. We hope to see you there!
Also do not forget the Bee Class on 2/7 from 9-3 at the Fairgrounds. I have attached another flyer (I want to make sure everyone gets the correct one). The actual cost is $20 and will include lunch. Please call John, Kurt or I with any questions.
We talked a lot about the importance of feeding this time of year, especially with the low honey supply last fall. I have again attached a recipe, but there are many out there…just try and keep them fed until the nectar starts coming out.
Thanks and BEE WELL!!!
