Annual Picnic Saturday September 21

Greetings Beeks!

The annual picnic will be at Gregory Pond (see attached map), Saturday, September 21, 3pm till dusk. We still need volunteers to help with food, drinks, foodware (utensils, plates, napkins, plastic glasses, trash bags, etc), and clean up.

The club will provide chicken – please bring salads and desserts to share. If you prefer a different meat, feel free to bring that along.

Please email Bruce Hamond at comish29 to let him know how many are coming so he knows how much chicken to prepare.

Hope to see you there!

501(c)3 Application update

Beek Members:

An application has been filed with the Virginia State Corporate Commission to make the Rockwood Park Backyard Beekeepers Association a no Stock Non-profit entity. Review and approval is expected to take between one and three weeks. An announcement when the application has been approved will be forthcoming.

This is the first step in becoming a 501(c)(3) entity. Obtaining that status was approved by the membership in the past month or so. Once the state has granted No stock, Non-profit status to the Association, we will file for 501(c)(3) status with the IRS.
