Message from the Queen Bee

Dear Beekeepers of Volusia County,

We have a few things to go over this month for our meeting. I want to ask for a good turnout either on Zoom or in person.

First, I have a speaker planned for this month. His name is Bo Sterk, with Bees Beyond Borders. He is also a Master Craftsman. He will be joining us to speak at the beginning of the meeting at 6:30pm. He will be driving in from St Augustine and will need to be on the road by 7:25pm. It would be terrific to have a great turnout for this meeting.

Second, We will have a brief “Show & Tell” about some of our hive removal equipment. Marlin, Larry and Curt have their parts and pieces to show our members what they use to collect swarms.

Finally, We will begin to plan our special events. The Daytona Beach News-journal Home show is the first event coming up on October 22-24th at the Ocean Center. We need to know who can help tend the booth to build interest in our club and increase membership.

It will be an informational meeting with our speakers and the line up. Please make the notes on you planner. July 28th at the Ag Center at 6:30pm.

When We get the Zoom Meeting from the Ag department, we will send it out to you.
