2020 Meeting Schedule

Here's the meeting schedule for 2020. The dates for the first three meetings are firm and the others are as firm as the weather permits them to be and/or member apiaries can schedule. While it is subject to change, we'll do our best to stick to this schedule.
The May through September meetings will be held outside at one of our members' apiary.  If you would like to volunteer to host the group at your apiary, please send an email to Centrecountybeekeepers@gmail.com or see one of the officers at a meeting.
