Due to pandemic restrictions, we are still limited on our meetings being held in the Collin’s Learning Center. However, since the weather remains nice, we want to continue our monthly meetings and fulfill our mission of education and assistance to beekeepers. This month, we will meet outside around the campfire. Marshmallows and roasting sticks will be provided. Look for the yellow club banner and bring your lawn chair.

a. Hive inspection
b. Honey storage
