Club Meeting Monday Night July 8

Hello Beeks!
I hope you had a safe and fun 4th holiday.
This Monday, July 8, is our monthly beekeeper club meeting at the Rockwood Park Nature Center. Meeting is from 7:00-8:30pm.

We will be hearing from Keith Tignor – our Virginia State Apiarist, speaking to us on varroa mites – how to check your hives. This is a timely and important topic for all of us.

I hope to see you there!

We have a winner!

Since no one replied to our last email about the winning ticket – we have a new ticket drawn, #407513 – and we know who this ticket belongs to: Christy Damrath

Congrats Christy! You are the winner of the beautiful Inspired rock that was on display at the Festival entrance. Gene DiSalvo will reach out to you to make arrangements to present this wonderful stonework to you. Hopefully that can happen at RPBBA’s club meeting at the Nature Center in Rockwood Park on Monday, July 8.

Thanks to all who participated!
