It is that time of year again. Time to renew your club membership. This year we are registering members online. This provides a great way to maintain
our membership database. It also gives a way to update our list of service providers. For example, swarm catchers, honey sales, queen or bee package sales, as well as other useful services like mentoring to club members. Please help us by renewing your membership information online. You can pay at your next meeting. Thank you.
With a new year comes new officers. Our 2019 club officers, voted in at the December meeting are as follows:
President – Paul Dorger
Vice President – Geoff Hultgren
Treasurer – Keith Mealy
Secretary – Alice Craig
Let’s all welcome them and thank them for stepping up for the club.
Thank you!: what a wonderful gathering! Welcome to all the new beekeepers and a “Nice to see you!” to the experienced beekeepers.
Presentation: About a dozen different beekeepers presented short, focused Best practices presentation. It was a refreshing presentation.
Volunteer Opportunities: Refreshment sign-ups w Anne Richardson. Sign up and share the responsibility one month with another beekeeper. Mentoring/being Mentored: We are in process of completing a mentor/mentee application. We will post it as soon as we have it done. We always need more Mentors so even if you have only been keeping bees for a year, volunteer to help a neighbor do their first hive inspections or plan their monitoring calendar or help them spot the queen. It’s a nice way to meet folks who share your interest in beekeeping.
** CLASSES SOLD OUT but you can go visit vendors** Once again this year, on March 23rd, Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences presents the Southwestern Ohio Beekeepers School.
