October Meeting...

  Hampden County Beekeepers’ October Meeting

When: Thursday October 10th
Starting at 7:00pm

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

 It’s October and it’s time to meet again!  This will be our Big E follow up meeting.  For members who sold honey and beeswax products at the Big E, checks will be available for pick up at the meeting.  Treasurer Cheryl Robare will be ready to give us all the full financial report on the fair, so we can see how we did.  Did you work the Big E?  It’s time to go over the pros and cons.  How did we do, what can we do better, and what’s really working great?  We will also have our annual post Big E auction.  Left over honey sips and candy will be available for purchase to the highest bidders.  There is usually something for everyone, so bring your wallets!  If you have anything bee related you’d like to get rid of, feel free to bring that too.  We’ll auction anything!  President Jeff Rys will be our auctioneer for the evening. 

Next, let’s talk about getting our hives ready for winter!  If you have questions or suggestions concerning fall and winter management, please join us at the October meeting for this discussion topic.    

Bee well!
