Welcome to 2022!

What a year! The club managed to meet throughout 2021by Zoom. We waived the membership fees for those that had paid in 2020. Some of you paid anyway, plus we got a few new members. Dues for 2022 are just $15. Many of the past members should have received the 2022 Membership Form. Use the 'Contact Form' (seen when looking at the blog from your computer) if you need one sent to you.

Tonight's Zoom is Randy Oliver on How Colonies Survive Cold Winters.

https:zoom.us has lots of easy to follow information about how to use Zoom.

Welcome to 2021!


We are hopeful that more and more of you will be vaccinated and our club can safely return, sometime this year, to some sort of in-person gatherings. Until then, we will continue meeting via Zoom. The January18 presentation is by Randy Oliver of Scientificbeekeeping.com on Overwintering Bees- What's Important. 

If you did not get the Zoom invite by email your membership may have lapsed or we have the wrong email. Contact us at honeybeeclubstillwater@gmail.com
