PCBA is pleased to announce a new program to help its members get their kids involved in beekeeping. As we all know, a bee suit is a must have item for beekeeping. We also know that bee suits are not cheap and that kids outgrow their clothes quickly. This is where the Bee Suits for Kids program comes in. The club has purchased several kid sized bee suits and is making them available, on loan, to members on a month to month basis. Here’s how it works:
- To borrow a suit, call Kenny Pearl at (781) 837-8881 or email him at . If you email him include a phone number. You can pick up the suit(s) at the Hanson Clubhouse at a monthly meeting or make arrangements for someone with a key to meet you there.
- To return a suit(s), please remove the hood, wash the suit and bring it to a regularly scheduled monthly meeting or executive board meeting.
- If your kids have suits that they have outgrown please consider donating them to the club to help us expand the program.
The kids are our future beekeepers and your club wants to do everything possible to help get them started at an early age and to help make beekeeping a family tradition.
