Our regular meeting place (Lee County Extension, IFAS facility) will NOT be available again for our May meeting. Instead we will meet at our Club Apiary (less than 1/2 mile from our regular meeting place). Many of our members have not been to the Club Apiary and meeting there will be a great opportunity to visit it.
Our Next Meeting will be a Club
"Speaker and Topic": None, will be a Barbeque instead, RSVP to Don or Rebecca : Bring your own chairs (since there are no chairs at the apiary). Members can help by bringing items (i.e., potato salad, coleslaw, desserts, tables, extra chairs, shelter, etc.) Don can provide a 10' x 10' pop-up shelter and two 6-ft tables. Again, please respond, so we can get a good head count and assure that we will have enough food for everybody. Rebecca has volunteered to on the day of the meeting to post a sign on the IFAS door notifying those who show up at our regular meeting place that we are meeting at the club apiary. She will include her cell phone number for anybody who have questions.
