September Agenda

Greetings fellow beekeepers.

I hope this finds you well and intact, surviving COVID-19 and the devastating storm called a derecho.

  Have you honey to harvest this year, and have you done so?  From reports I've seen this is the second fine honey season in a row.  Hopefully you have been able to experience that.

Due to concerns about meeting face-to-face yet at this time, we will not be meeting at our regularly scheduled time and place yet again.  Instead, thanks to Dan Clark, a member of ECIBA and the founder of Heartland Bee Club, we will be able to join an online Zoom meeting.  You do not need to join the Heartland Bee Club Facebook page though you are encouraged to do so.  

The online presentation will be by Dr. Meghan Milbrath, an entomologist with Michigan State University.  Dr. Milbrath will be talking about small scale queen rearing.  

If you are unfamiliar with using Zoom, don't fear.  It really is fairly simple.  You can find information about how to download and use the Zoom platform here. Basically, you need to download the app for your phone or computer, create a simple account with user name and password and enter the information below at the time of the meeting.
