On July 5th at the monthly meeting we will hear from Charles about our nemesis the Varroa mite. Robert will be presenting on basic beekeeping for all the new (and those that want to be new) beekeepers! Note that will be an apiary meeting this month but the topic will be a surprise.
Note, that if you want to join the club. Purchase your membership for 2016 by seeing Andy Matelich at the meeting.
