Hello There,
It’s been too long, sorry.
Here’s what’s going on (as far as I know).
Moonshine Beekeepers Association meeting will be held Wednesday, September 13, at 7:00PM.

We will discuss Winter preparations for our Bees. Please give the subject a little thought and come to the meetings with your suggestions and questions. See you Wednesday night.
