We’re looking forward to a crowd again – but this time YOU all are our speakers. Please come and bring observations about your hives/bees, questions that we can share and maybe answer, news about what’s going on in the bee community, maybe how you did at the Honey Festival in Parker, etc. How are your honey supers doing? Come and talk about them.
We are a good group of beekeepers, both old and new, so do come and share the bees with us. Everyone is welcome.
Also, if you’d like, bring a dish for our put luck. The club will furnish utensils, napkins, plates, and water. Who knew – great beekeepers = great cooks…..There may be honey for sale at the meeting.
The library will be there also for your use.
For you newbees, the parking lot in front of the firehouse fills up rapidly, but there is plenty of parking just past the firehouse in an athletic field public parking lot.
We hope to see you there. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or need directions to the firehouse.
Please remember that tonight is our meeting! It will be 7pm at the grange in Niwot, please bring your friends and treats for the rest of the beekeepers.
We also ask that you bring any old bee packages you wish to recycle.
