The 10 o’clock Beeline Beekeepers Club will hold its next monthly meeting of 2021 at 6:30 PM, on Monday, April 12th, in one of the meeting rooms on the lower level of the Brown County Library in Nashville. We welcome anyone interested in bees or beekeeping. Individuals interested in starting a beehive are particularly encouraged to attend. Experienced beekeepers in our club are available as mentors to anyone thinking about taking up this rewarding activity. Our major topics of discussion Monday night will be preparing for the imminent nectar flow, swarms and making splits. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, PLEASE BE SURE TO WEAR A FACE MASK. We will also be practicing social distancing.
The library is able to welcome us back for our monthly bee club meeting. Please be sure to wear your mask. Let’s talk bees. Hope to see you at the library next Monday. If you cannot make this meeting, please reach out to Tony with your email address. We were unable to recover the email list from yahoo groups.
We cannot gather at the public library yet, so Tony and Mark would like to try a Zoom meeting for our first meeting of 2021. Please join us using your computer, tablet or phone.
Mark Partridge is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
