What a festival!

Wow – we had over 3,000 people attend our festival this year! Amazing! A HUGE thanks goes out to each of you that volunteered or ran a booth at this year’s event.

In case you missed it – here is our very own Bruce Hammond on TV, talking about the festival:

Monthly Meeting Monday June 10 7:00 PM

Fellow Beeks
My humblest apologies! I was wrong about Kirsten Traynor speaking tonight. Instead, we are having a panel discussion entitled “Ask the Beekeeper “. In other words, YOU get to decide what is discussed at tonight’s meeting. Kirsten Traynor will be featured later this year.

Again, I apologize for the miscommunication.

Hello Beeks!
This is a friendly reminder that we are meeting on Monday June 10 at 7pm. This is the final meeting before our Honeybee Festival. Don’t worry – we will be discussing more than the festival at our meeting. Kristen Traynor will be speaking to our group. It will be informative as always.

Attached is our 2019 Honeybee Festival flyer. Please send this to everyone you know who might be interested in coming. Our festival is from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, June 15 – at the Rockwood Park Nature Center. We can always use last minute help if you are willing to assist in setup or tear down. Please do!

One last reminder – be looking over the proposed amendments/changes to our by-laws. We will be voting on those changes shortly after the Honeybee Festival. If you have any questions about those changes, please contact Steve Syratt at w.s.syrettg

Hope to see you this week!

Beeks

We are less than 2 weeks away from our biggest festival ever! Please help us get the word out and encourage folks to attend. If you’ve never been to our festival, here is a short YouTube video from last year’s event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgvka7Lv9fU

This year’s flyer is attached. Feel free to forward this email to all your friends and hand out the flyer to anyone you know.

Last, if you are available to help on Saturday June 15 to either setup or take down, we are still looking for more volunteers. No experience necessary! We will begin setup at 7am and tear down will begin promptly at 2pm. The festival runs from 10am – 2pm.

Hope to see you there.
