Meeting June 2013 County Beekeepers
When: Wednesday, June 12th at 7pm
League (WHIL) Willimanset
Big E Meeting
At this meeting, we will select our Big E committee, go over the rules and regulations for Big E Sellers and volunteers, and vote on spending some money in hopes of making the Big E more profitable for everyone involved.
If you have any questions about what we do at the Big E, or what to expect as a volunteer, or even how you can sell your own honey or beeswax products in the HCBA booth at the fair, this meeting is for you!
I am proposing we spend an estimated $900 to buy custom printed bright yellow bags to put our honey in. Our customers will carry our bags around the Big E all day and advertise for us, generating more visitors to our booth and more sales. At the meeting I will have a bag sample, and price quotes. The treasurer’s report will also be available for review at the meeting so you can see the finances before you vote.
After the Big E discussion and the vote, we will have an open forum bee talk. What’s on your mind? What’s going on in your hive? Want to talk about swarm prevention? I do!
We will have pizza, salad and drinks.
All members are welcome to attend. Please RSVP to me by email or phone if you plan to attend so we order enough food!
