THE LATEST BUZZ...
Now that the county fair is over, fall is really upon us! As our girls in the hives prepare for winter, the Tuscarawas County Beekeepers prepare for another year, and we have a few social events coming up.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, October 13, where we will have a potluck dinner beginning at 6:00 p.m. Please bring a dish and/or
dessert, table service (plates, utensils), napkins and a drink.
The educational program for the evening will be a "Beekeeping Questions and Answers" event. Please bring your beekeeping questions to the meeting, and I will try to wrangle our more seasoned beekeepers into providing the answers! This would also be a good time to talk about your final winter preparations for your colonies.This meeting will be held at the Winfield United Methodist Church, 5247 State Route 516, Dover, Ohio.
Another date that may be of importance to you as a beekeeper is the Ohio State Beekeepers Fall Conference on Saturday, November 5th at Tolles Technical Center in Plain City, Ohio. Click here to register. Speakers, vendors, varroa-nosema testing, auction table- fun for all! On-line registration ends October 28th
On November 10, we will elect our leaders for the 2017 year. While we don't have a meeting in December or January, but we look forward to our annual banquet on Saturday, January 14. Look for more information to come about this fun date.
We hope you'll BEE THERE!
