After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

At the October 27, 2020 Board Meeting, the officers approved:
  • Suspending nominations for new officers until January 2021.  Select a nominating committee by January 2021 and present a slate of officers at the February 2021 Membership Meeting.  Members will vote at the March 2021 Membership Meeting. 
  • 2020 Christmas Party and Beekeeper of the Year Award are CANCELLED this year and rescheduled for December 2021.  No December Membership Meeting.
 
It's finally Fall with cooler temperatures.  Preparing for winter, you should have checked and treated for mites, fed your bees, reduced the entrance, and assured proper ventilation.  On a warmer day, temperatures above 50 degrees, your bees may venture out.  If your hive's food stores are low, on a warm day you may open your hive and feed heavy syrup, 1 part water to 1 part cane sugar.  Top feeders are easiest, but division board feeders may be used. 
The November Membership Meeting speaker is Bobby Torbush, Master Beekeeper, on "Processing Bees Wax", a great winter project.  Hope to see you in person or on Zoom!
