We were very excited about the $500 from MBA. The idea of creating a "kit" for educating kids about bees would be great to help get the word out about bees and educate the public, through the kids!! If we did that we would very likely get the second $500! There were some good ideas brought up at the meeting about what the kit might contain. We would be willing to help with outreach to the homeschool community. As for the second $500 we could use it to better our club. At the meeting, some of us talked about buying some equipment to start a breeding program to help create a strong local bee. This would help all of us in the club and the bees in Michigan.

We received the first $500 from MBA. The latest conversation from the bee meeting was to work in conjunction with For-Mar nature preserve to install a couple of hives there. For-Mar is a part of Genesee County Parks & Recreation. We are hoping to get 4-H involved with these hives and begin some introductory Bee Classes. Bryan Allen of For-Mar was present at our latest meeting and will be looking to get an area of For-Mar set up (fenced in) for the project. We, the club, will be providing the equipment, bees, and protective clothing. Oh yes, club members will also put on presentations and classes to teach beekeeping to the kids....Adults too if they are interested.

Cheers
Jim
