Old or Ongoing Business:
Blocks have arrived for the club bathroom, but will wait until the
removed from the slab.
Harold and Erica Barnes talked about this year’s Outdoor Expo in
Andalusia. It is going to be bigger and better than last years.
After talking about the layout and how we could have our club booth
next to the Blount’s and Rossman’s booths. The club voted to buy
two booths so we would have enough room for everyone’s honey and all
the educational materials as well. We also agreed to help OJ and
Lucy man their booth along with ours. The hours will be 3-9 on
Friday, 9-6 on Saturday, and 9-5 on Sunday. We might sell chances
on a basket or two to raise additional funds to pay for the booth
Henry Elmore did not show up with the nucs because there was trouble
with the queens. So you can expect them to arrive on the 13th.
We will do final planning and preparing for Kids Day as well on that
day. There is some talk that a scout troop could come this year.
There are a couple of swarms out in the bee yard so several went out
to learn how to put them in a hive. It was the first time for some
to see this procedure.
Great meeting and another wonderful meal shared by all.
Present at our meeting was Lucy Blount, OJ Blount, Keith Robinson,
Donna Blair, Sharon Campbell, Jason Piland, Gary Barrow, Vicky
Barrow, Randy Shaffer, Dana Thrower, Don Helton, James Turk, John
and Nicky Kilmer, and Dana Thrower, Jim Ledbetter, Harold and Erica
Barnes, Karuna McAclister, Lawrence U. Wilder, and Davis Quintanilla
with his son.
