2020 July Meeting
July 2, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Hi everyone! Well unfortunately we still are not allowed to have a meeting…so ZOOM it is. Below is the link to join the meeting on Thursday, July 2, 2020. The meeting will start at 7:00 PM but you can log on a little earlier. Please be patient – the meetings are a little difficult online but we are trying to find ways to tweak them and make them a little smoother.
We are trying to have a program this month – and the months following since it is looking like we won’t be back in the agricultural center anytime soon. Bruce is trying to have EMS with us this Thursday night to discuss anaphylaxis and heat related issues – we all know just how hot it is now in a bee suit! He will find out today if that is possible. With or without the program we have things to discuss. The club apiary is rolling along great! Honey was harvested and extracted, and will be bottled soon for sale. We have a storage building now, just waiting to get it moved to the apiary. This will be such a big help!
We also are participating in the Golden Achievement Program. The Golden Achievement Program (GAP) is intended to be high recognition of the efforts of a chapter and its members to advancing the practice, science and community of beekeeping through the year. We will receive a $300 for meeting the minimum requirements. We are struggling with our requirements since the pandemic. But we can catch up! Below is the link to all the information about the program. Please look it over and if there is anything you can contribute please let Greg know.
Also – we need everyone to join the NCSBA if possible. It will earn us GAP points. Look for an email soon about a raffle we are planning for everyone that has joined or joins this year. Raffle drawing will be in December at our Christmas party (providing we can actually have a party), either way we will raffle off a NUC…so join the NCSBA for your chance to win. There are a lot of reasons to join – please look at their website! https://www.ncbeekeepers.org/
Magnus has updated our website – take a look at it!
There’s also lots of information shared on our facebook page- be sure to join that as well if you haven’t already 🙂
I sure miss seeing everyone and being able to socialize before and after the meeting! I hope everyone is healthy and safe and that things get back to normal – sooner than later!
