June Meeting @ Pioneer Village, June 14

Apologies for the late notice, but as you can imagine things are all a bit up in the air now.

We will be at Caesar Creek Pioneer Village Sunday, June 14, at our regular meeting time (1:30 PM). We will be lighting a smoker, demonstrating a hive inspection, and doing a sugar shake for Varroa Mites. Meet at the overflow parking area. Bring water, a folding chair, and whatever beekeeping protective gear you are comfortable with. This would be a great opportunity for our newer members.  Caesarscreekpioneervillage.com
