Members of our group will have the chance to join a group order for package bees and individual queens this spring. Due to some unforeseen circumstances with our vendor, ordering is a later than planned but will begin in very soon in March with delivery taking place on April 29th or 30th. Members only may participate, so you must find the ordering link in your email. If you are on the mailing list you will receive the notice when ordering opens. You can NOT order from this website. Our apologies for confusion with the old ‘login’ and ‘register’ buttons. Those were for message boards that are not currently active.
The club will have our annual booth at the Imaginology Event to show off our live observation hive and sell honeystix. Our Queenbee just might be attending. Come join us! Volunteers will be needed to man the booth during all open hours. Stay tuned for details or ask a board member about volunteering for a shift.
