Everyone invited! The next meeting of the Outer Banks BeeKeepers’ Guild will be held on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, (NOT our usual second Wednesday) at the Kill Devil Hills Library, 400 Mustian St. in KDH, beginning at 7:00 pm. Arrive anytime after 6:30 to hang & socialize… whether you are just getting started, are a seasoned vet, or wanting more info about honey bees in general, we welcome you to join us. (If you arrive after 7 pm when the Library has locked the front door, follow the sidewalk around the left side of the building to the back door. Please remember, they have new carpet so request no food or drinks.)
Our Guest Speaker: Etienne Nadeau, a man who wears many hats! In addition to being the president of our sister group, Beekeepers of the Albemarle (in Eliz. City), he has earned the distinction of Master Beekeeper by the NCSBA, is a commercial beekeeper/pollinator, and a local rep for Brushy Mountain beekeeping supplies to boot!
Etienne will explain the Ways, Whys and Whens of Feeding Bees, in addition to explaining some of his experiences as a commercial beekeeper.
If you are in need of anything from Brushy Mountain Bee Supply, check out their online catalog (brushymountainbeefarm.com) and give him a call or email prior to his arrival next Tuesday to see if he can deliver your product when he comes down! Etienne Nadeau, (252) 619-7308, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll also include our usual raffle, so please bring any items you’d like to donate (bee related or otherwise) and/or some dollars to donate toward a ticket to win!
Hope to see you next Tuesday, February 13, at 7! (PS If you ordered a round top feeder or blue top covers, I plan to bring them all to the meeting.)
