Good Evening Fellow Beekeepers,

It is time for Mid Michigan Beekeepers Club meeting, this Thursday February 5th, 2015
held at Forest Township Hall 130 E. Main Street Otisville MI. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
meeting starts at 7:00p.m.

We will be taking Bee orders this month for AWS Bees, LLC, Golden Harvest Bob Hollis,
and Don Schram with his nuc’s. Just a reminder that the final date for bee order for AWS
must be paid for by March 25th, 2015. I believe that Bob Hollis and Don Schram will
around that time as well.

We will have a guest speaker, and a break out session for beginning / want to be beekeepers, who will meet in the kitchen unless there are too many then we will divide the hall up. Bring your note pads and questions to the meeting for questions and answers before we break for the night.

We will talk about the Spring conference next month March 13 & 14th at the Kelloggs center in East Lansing. for more information go to and in the top left hand corner you will find the 2015 conference, click on that and review the class schedules as they are posted and you can even register early for the MBA on line to save time and money.

We will be having a booth at the spring conference and we need volunteers to help out. I will touch base on this at our meeting.
