2019 Meeting Schedule

Here's the meeting schedule for 2019. The dates for the first four 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.

I didn't see many bees flying around my hive late this morning. It was over 40 degrees. I waited until 1:30 PM when the temperatures reached a little over 50 degrees. I got a big surprise when I opened the top fining a huge ball of bees that I would guess was 10" in diameter and I have no idea how long. I put more sugar in the feeder and closed it up. I thought that was exciting.
