Hello Western Colorado Beekeepers Association Members and Friends,

Our next monthly meeting will be held on September 11, 2013 at 6:30pm at the Jockey Club at the Mesa County Fairgrounds.  We will be talking about things beekeepers need to be doing in September (examples: taking honey off, weighing hives, feeding, mite treatment and ventilation) and also will be looking for a couple of new board members to help the club.  We hope to see you there!
Board Member Search: A couple of board members will be leaving this year due to other commitments or new family members!  We’re looking for a few good people to fill in behind them.  There is some flexibility in responsibility and positions that the new board will work out (our current positions are President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and Media Officer).  Time commitments for board members typically include a board meeting (usually 2 hours or less per month) and attendance at the monthly meeting and some other special events.  If you are interested, please respond to this email or let us know or tell us at the upcoming meeting!  You can also contact us if you have any questions.
As WCBA members you also have a membership with the Colorado State Beekeepers Association!  Here is the CSBA’s September newsletter, the High Country Bee: http://coloradobeekeepers.org/high-country-bee-edition-2-volume-9-september-2013/
WCBA Survey – Last month we passed around a survey about what you’d like to see the club do and the direction we should head.  We’ll be passing that around again at our next meeting to get even more input.
There is a Fruita City Council meeting on September 17th at 7pm that WCBA members and “friends of bees” have been invited to attend and support. There is an ordinance against beekeeping in Fruita that an organization called BRICK wants changed. We are working with them to find out what they need and we will present details at the WCBA meeting on September 11th. If you have an area of knowledge, (environmental, health, educational, etc) you feel you can share with the council, let us know at the meeting on the 11th. It should be interesting and fun!  Help us make beekeeping legal within Fruita city limits!
Our minutes from the last meeting are also attached!
Thank you for your interest in beekeeping and helping the bees!
