Happy Summer (finally) everyone!! The bees are sooooo busy. We have had 3 swarms (maybe more) from our top bar hive. Mark Arnold & Carrie & family were able to collect them in HOward and give them a new home in BV.
Jo Reese has offered to have the June meeting at her home in BV. The meeting will be 6/24 at 6 pm. Following are directions to her home.
16115 County Road 306
719 966 7711
Turn west at only traffic light in BV at Hwy 24
Go west a little over 2 miles
Go past the “four A-frames”
House on right with 6′ log fence
Two black cows in SE yard
Large solar panels in SW yard
Bring stories & questions to share about your new hives, spring time activity etc.
Thanks and enjoy watching your bees collect the harvest of summer!
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!!!
