Dear Beekeepers: The first 2015 Meeting of the Steuben County Honeybee Association is coming up Monday, March 9th, 7:30 PM at Lakeview Apartments in Bath. If it's your first visit, feel free to email me for directions. Be sure to park in the visitor parking area which is the row farthest from the building. We're in the conference room- walk through the door in the center section, just to the right of the fountain, straight through the second door and turn right. Our topic will be what to do with your hives in the spring.
Dues for 2015 are due. Our dues are still $5, same as ten and twenty years ago, not like our competitors, the Ontario Finger Lakes Beekeepers. Their dues have rocketed up from $0 to $10.00. Whew! Who can afford that? I guess some of their members will be migrating south to Bath, where beekeeping is still affordable.
Don't forget the 2015 Geneva Bee Conference is coming up March 14th. There will be 3 speakers, plus vendors, door prizes, and a dish to pass lunch.
