HABA Bee School–I apologize that there was some confusion with the date. The Bee School will be held Saturday, February 8. Read all the details here. Be sure to pass along the information to any friends or family that have shown an interest in beekeeping.
Thank you to those of you who have offered to volunteer at the banquet or bee school and/or donate items to the tea cup auctions. We really appreciate your participation! If you would like to be involved, please contact Connie.
Steps are being taken to transition from the HABA blog to a website. We are excited about moving forward and have some ideas on what the site would include, but desire your input!
Which features do you feel would most benefit our organization?
How best could it serve to educate and encourage beekeepers in west Michigan?
We already have plans for a calendar of events and information to assist in improving communication for members.
We are encouraging members to share any stories, how-to articles, photographs, and videos concerning honeybees, beekeeping, products of the hive, etc.
Submissions, comments, and questions may be submitted here.
Thanks for your help in this undertaking!
Happy New Year,
