The club will provide lunch starting at noon (hot dogs, chips, maybe cookies & bottled water). The meal and social time will be from noon to 1 pm. The club meeting will begin at 1 pm and run until around 1:30 pm. Then we will have a couple of demonstrations from club members followed by hive inspections, mite checks, how to make a split and getting ready for honey. Members will need to bring a chair, bee protection and sign a waiver. Having the meeting outdoors members can social distance as they feel comfortable. We will have someone assigned to serve members cafeteria style to avoid unnecessary touching of food.

The first and possibly annual December silent auction was very well attended! A special thank you to all who attended and donated the wonderful items featured in the auction. The club bee yard will benefit greatly with funds generated at the auction.
