Beth Phillippe sent this email to me yesterday. If any of you beeks are interested in helping this family, please call Beth.
If you could let members know that I was approached by a couple at the farmers market. They have an A Frame house and bees are in the eaves. She said that there is inside access to the area. I have their name and number and will give it to who ever wants to tackle this and get free bees. Just call me.
Saturday April 8th at 9:00 a.m. at
Centerview Baptist Church
508 NE Connector
Albemarle, N.C. 28001
We will conduct a Spring Field Day
J.R. Whitley will let us tour one of his bee yards. Bring your protective gear and you will have a chance to get into a hive and see the inner workings of the bee hive (good things) and learn how to work around a hive.
We will offer the master beekeeper practical test to anyone who is a NCSBA state member and would like to take it at this time*.
We will return to the church for a short meeting, we will provide a meal (dessert if you would like bring one), door prizes and a few games (BRING YOUR SMOKER favorite fuel AND HIVE TOOL) we will have several nice prizes.
I encourage the beekeeping class members if you can please come out attend the field day this will be a great learning/training session.
Look forward to seeing everyone this Saturday.
*anyone not able to attend and wanting to take the practical test call 704-961-8417
