Package ordering is underway. Packages will be $112.00 this year for Continuing Members as defined in the Bee Package Policy & Schedule document and $135.00 for all others. Payment for packages is by check or money order only. No credit cards are accepted. All come with marked queens. Package pickup is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 24, subject to change. Package pickup details will be posted separately when the time comes.
Orders that contain a check for the wrong amount will not be processed. Valid orders will be processed on a “first come, first serve” basis until the number of packages ordered from the distributor is reached. Instructions for ordering packages by mail can be found in the Bee Package Policy & Schedule document.
COVID-19 Related Cancellations
Regrettably, the annual club Christmas Party and Bee School will have to join the Marshfield Fair and the fall picnic at the Jones River Watershed as casualties of the COVID-19 pandemic. There will also be no November monthly meeting. Note that there was traditionally no monthly meeting in December because we had the Christmas Party instead. We plan to resume monthly meetings in January either remotely via Zoom or in “hybrid” mode depending on the dynamics of the COVID-19 situation at the time.
Although we are not doing Bee School in 2021 due to COVID-19, one of our sister clubs, the Norfolk County Beekeepers Association, is doing a virtual bee school. Details are available at their Bee School Page.
We wish everyone a safe holiday season. Let’s all hope that we can put 2020 behind us and start to resume some of our signature “in-person” events and gatherings in the New Year!
