May and the Annual Meeting...

Because our time together from January through April is taken up with bee school, our May meeting is our first official club meeting.  This year's annual meeting is important because we will be electing the Board of Directors who will hold office for the next 2 years.  These meetings are less structured than our school sessions and are great asset for all members.  As soon as the new officers have been locked into their positions, we'll choose our Big E Committee for this year's fair, and then have an open floor for Q&A and general bee discussion.  I hope to see all of you there!   Here's the official meeting announcement...

Hampden County Beekeepers May Meeting 2013

When: Wednesday, May 8th at 7pm

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

At our first post-school meeting on May 8th, we’ll be holding elections for a new board of directors.

And the nominees are…
President… Jeff Rys
Vice President… Tom Flebotte
Treasurer…  Cheryl Robare
Secretary…  Jessica Martin
Trustees (3)… Lee Duquette, Larry Borysyk, Ron Willoughby & Mike Feeney

As our out-going president, Jim Stefanik will be our 4th Trustee

We have 4 nominees for 3 Trustee positions, and all of the other nominees are running unopposed.  We do still have to make it official.  Come out and vote! 

Once the new Board of Directors has been made official, they will elect “The Big E Committee”.  The fair will be here before we know it!

After elections, we will have an open floor for Questions & Answers, and we would also love to hear from our newest members about how their first hive installation experience went...  Hopefully the new  bees are here by then.
