Bee School Session 7...

Hampden County Beekeepers Bee School March 2013

When: Thursday, April 11th at 7pm

Where:  Willimanset Heights Improvement League (WHIL)
118 Mount Vernon Rd.
Chicopee, MA 01013

This will be our seventh session of bee school for 2013… getting closer to the end!

All members are welcome to attend. 

HCBA Vice President, Jeff Rys will be back to cover Fall & Winter Management and Honey Extraction.        

HCBA member Lee Duquette will be in attendance with some goodies to sell too.  If you need pollen patties, Lee’s got them for $2.25 a piece which is a steal considering the retail price is $3.00!  If you don’t need a whole case, but need a little something to get your bees through this cold spring weather, Lee is your man!  PLEASE BRING YOUR SINGLES and QUARTER so Lee won’t have to make change!  He’ll also have single serving doses of Fumagilin B if you need that.

Bee school will be over soon, and at our first post-school meeting we’ll be holding elections for a new board of directors.  Per our by-laws; “The Secretary and Treasurer may be re-elected without limitation, subject to their willingness to serve, and doing so to the satisfaction of the Association.” While each of the other offices “may serve no more than 2 consecutive 2 year terms, however they may be elected again after an interval of 2 years”.  If you have any nomination ideas for President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, or our 3 Trustee positions, or want to get involved yourself, please let me know.    

I will have Mann Lake catalogs available again, as well as some information from local suppliers, Lagrants. 

I will also have sign up sheets for the Sturbridge Village Trip for anyone interested, just find me and ask!

Bee well!
