Upcoming Events and Honey Extractor Information

 

Honey Extractor Rental

One of the benefits you have as a PCBA member is access to the club's honey extraction rental equipment. As long as the equipment is returned cleaned and functioning, it will cost only $25, to rent all you need (plus a $100 refundable deposit) to collect your honey. If you would like to rent the equipment please contact Ida Griffin. (See our Facebook page for information to contact a club officer for Mrs. Griffin´s contact information.) Mrs. Griffin will email you a copy of the equipment rental agreement. If you decide you would like to rent the extraction equipment, please make arrangements through Mrs. Griffin, our Extractor Rental Coordinator.

 

1. Please consider paying your 2022 PCBA Club membership dues. You can pay them in person or online.

 

2. The Bee Club's next meeting will be Thursday, April 21, 2022, at the Lamb Branch Library. There will be a presentation about our up-and-coming queen-rearing program for members. We will have a hands-on project building small mating nucs and discuss how to use them. A short presentation on how to install package bees in your hive. We will provide the materials to members to build the mating nucs. Non-members will need to pay $5 to participate if you want to build a mating nuc. Please reserve your spot for the meeting no later than April 7th if you want to build a mating nuc so we can purchase the proper quantity of materials. 

 

The meeting will be broadcast simultaneously via Zoom. You will be able to ask questions and have them answered in real-time.

 

Eventbrite: Please register via Eventbrite if you plan to attend as only 30 people can attend in person.
