All the buzz you need to get…about and for Beekeepers

Garden Jubilee – Saturday and Sunday May 28th and 29th

Hey there HCBA members,
We need your help!  We are going to have a booth/tent at Garden Jubilee, which is Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend 5/28 and 5/29, and we need volunteers to fill time slots to sell honey (if you have any to sell already) and/or talk to people about bees and their importance.  If you’re a relatively new beekeeper and are thinking that you don’t know enough about bees… well, you know more than you think and definitely know more than the average festival goer… especially if you attended Bee School!  Here is the link to sign up:

Please consider joining us to help spread the word about how important bees are to everyone that likes to eat… AND you get to hang out with fellow beeks!!!
Thank you for your kind consideration,

Jim Poe
