Great Turn Out for March Meeting

We had a great turn out for our March 10th meeting of the Crossroads Beekeepers.  Extra chairs were set for the nearly 60 people in attendance.  Larry Quicksall spoke on feeding bees following this hard winter, and Dave Dhom showed off a new swarm trap that he has been working on this winter.

Our next meeting will be on Monday, April 14th, at 6:30pm.  We hope to see all of you there.

Happy Beekeeping!
