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, June 14, at 7:00PM. We will discuss the VSBA meeting which we will be sponsoring at Ferrum College Friday, June 16 from Noon till 8:45PM and Saturday, June 17 from 8:00AM till 5:00PM. We had a dry run at the college last Saturday and I can assure everyone that our clubs responsibilities are minimal; the College is obviously well practiced in putting something like this on and they will do a good job.
See you Wednesday night.
