Saturday, December 12th at 5 PM, Duxbury Senior Center
The annual PCBA Christmas party will be at the Duxbury Senior Center, 10 Mayflower St in Duxbury on December 12th, starting at 5:00 PM. There will be a pot luck supper and a Yankee Swap. Yankee Swap gifts are generally in the price range of $10.00 – $15.00. Please tag the gift as being suitable for male, female or both (like Mead). Please contact Delores Marchewka at to coordinate your potluck supper offering. We need appetizers, main dishes, salads, bread/rolls, desserts and punch. Chuck Shea is bringing a ham.
This is one of the clubs favorite events. Delores and Chuck Marchewka do a wonderful job of planning and coordinating it every year. The food is always great and there is always a lot of action at the Yankee Swap. Especially when there is a bottle of mead in play. So mark it on your calendar and if If you know of a member that does not receive email, or needs a ride let them know about the party and give them a ride if they need it.
Over the past month Massachusetts beekeepers have collaborated to create a Massachusetts Pollinator Protection Plan Framework based on the Presidential directive for Pollinator Health in the Nation.
On September 15, 2015, the “Eight County President’s Beekeepers Pollinator Protection Plan Framework” was submitted to our legislators, the MA Pesticide Bureau and the MA Farm Bureau. On October 8, 2015 a followup was sent to Commissioner John Lebeaux, Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) to reiterate that this framework should be the Massachusetts Framework rather than simply a response to an invitation to comment on any other proposed framework.
Please take a moment to read what this plan intends to do to forge a Pollinator Protection Plan Framework in the Commonwealth and to lend your future support. Let us know how you can help going forward.
