Merry Chirstmas Fellow Beekeepers
A good portion of you have ordered bees, but I am sending a reminder to the rest
of the club who haven't. January 2012 is 13 days away and our bee order will be
coming to a close. If there are any more beekeepers who are interested in ordering
please get with me as soon as possible. I would like to get our order set and secure
to make sure we get our bees.
I believe Dave Anthony will be at the club meeting on January 5th to collect the orders.
Terry Toland maybe making his appearance to speak to our club as he did with Saginaw Valley Beekeepers earlier this month after his election or MBA President.
Club dues are currently due, they will run for example from January 1, 2012 until December 31,2012 being renewable at the January meeting.
Help is needed to bring the Honey Festival together any one interested in helping contact Im Dodder or Terry Toland. We will be doing raffles monthly to help increase the club funds. If anyone has other ideals for fundraisers, please contact me and I will present it to the club for a vote.
We will be raffling off another complete hive at the ANR week in March, it would be nice to have a few extra people willing to sit by the table and help sell tickets too. As soon as I get any information on the ANR week I wqill pass it along to you. There will be a MBA meeting on January 14, 2012 at 10:00a.m. if any one is interested in attending. Your ideals and inputs will be heard at the meeting.
If anyone knows of a fellow beekeepers who does not do the internet please get their name address and phone number and I will send them out a flyer when our meetings will be. I am looking into sending a club newsletter as well, both online and by mail for those who do not use the internet.
I also want to take a moment and let you know you all have been a terriffic group of
beekeepers and friends. Each one brings a little something to our meetings which all are important. There always room for questions even if it has been asked before.This is what makes our group so unique. We compliment each other in our thought and what we share.
Tis the season to enjoy each other, family and friends and to share our beekeeping lessons and products with our loved ones. Look forward to what is in store for us in the coming new year. Please be safe in your holiday travels and look forward to seeing you next year.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A BLESSED HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Barb Applebee, President
Mid-Michigan Beekeepers Club
