The next meeting will be January 8th at 6:30pm at Crest Academy located at 12th & G in Salida. I think it would be great if we could discuss our mission for our club and possible goals or plans for 2015. I know there has been a lot of interest in spreading info to the community on the non-use of pesticides and dangers in our area.
I hope everyones bees are tucked away for the winter. I know the honey supply was low this past year and feeding is a good idea. I will bring a recipe I got for feeding patties to put in the hives.
Our newest member John Babb has offered great info from his prior club in Oklahoma. He has offered to share some of this info with us.
I look forward to seeing everyone! Please bring your ideas and information.
I will also be forwarding info from the extension office, WAS conference and other misc items.
Please let me know if you have any questions and if you think you will be able to attend!
Kris & Dave Bielak
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

Thanks everyone and let me know if any other suggestions fo the September meeting!
Happy almost fall!!!
