President's Message

January 2020

Reports of dead outs are already coming in, and we have done
our first necropsy of the on season Jan. 4th, bet you cannot guess
the reason for the loss, it starts with a “V”.

This month’s meeting, January 10th, will be a round table of
events, wax processing, making fondant and processing creamed
honey. I’m sure there is something in there for everyone. These
will be actual demonstrations “not” a tell all about it, but more
of a come and “see how it is done” event, in hopes this will either
make you some money or save you the same.

The February meeting will be interesting we hope, our plans are
to analyze YouTube as a beekeeping information source, more
about that next month. Important information, LCBA officers
and executives have decided to amend our constitution and bylaws
marginally and as a result the suggested changes will be
read at the next two (2) month’s meetings in order to gain input
from you , the members, and of course to vote on these changes
at the March meeting. A 2/3rds approval is required by members
present to make any changes to our constitution or bylaws.
