FROM THE EDITORS DESK: June 2012
Busy bees were buzzing around the hive today. I was going to open them up but by the time I got home from church it clouded over so I decided to wait till tomorrow. Instead I hung out in the hammock and was delighted to see the hummingbird return after two years. So I quickly refilled the other feeders and came back out to put them on the poles. When I came back into the yard there was a giant raccoon sitting on my bird feeder eating seeds to his hearts content. He looked at me and ambled off, very annoyed. This is the first time in the 43 years I have lived here that I saw a raccoon in my yard! I’m just wondering if they bother the bee hives.
Just check the details about this month’s meeting. NO FOOD allowed, no snacks in your pockets, we will have water available. Don’t forget to email Moira if you want to reserve a copy of Kim’s books.
Again we had a great meeting last month, wonderful attendance and three new members signed up by PayPal. Welcome to Elizabeth Yastrzemski, Neil McPherson, Andrew Hulley and the beekeepers at HaBa Designs in Blue Point. May I ask all these new members to contact me via email with their phone numbers since that info does not appear on the PayPal forms and I would like to add that to our membership directory. Thanks for your help. firstname.lastname@example.org
