June Meeting...

Hampden County Beekeepers Meeting June 2013

When: Wednesday, June 12th at 7pm

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

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!       

Bee well!
