Wow we really need to take advantage of this.. If we can't come up with anything to spend it on we can always earmark the second $500 for community education and run a series of classes for education of the public and offer classes at no or little cost to the public!

Maybe we can use some of the first $500 chunk of money to pay any fee's in officially going non-profit so all our paperwork would be in order for ordering supplies tax free for club projects and classroom materials.

That is very nice. I know one of the things our President spoke of was starting a hive for educational purposes. It would be kept somewhere locally and maintained, with our help, perhaps by a group of school children. Another idea I have heard is to start a library of both video and books for educational purposes. And one idea that I like is to have some sort of presentation aid such as power point or some type of equipment to show video's we could make of hive inspections, powdered sugar shakes, extracting honey, uses of beeswax, etc..
