May Meeting Reminder & Upcoming Events

Happy Mothers Day everyone!!  We hope you enjoyed the day & were able to enjoy time and celebrate the special women in your life.

Reminder that the monthly meeting for May is tomorrow, Monday the 11th at 6:30 pm at the U of I extension.

Dave will be bringing the new extraction equipment.  He will talk about what it is and how to use it.  If you are a dues paid member, use of the equipment is included in your membership.  There will be an instruction sheet & contract to sign for those who check out and use the equipment.  We ask that you treat it gently & with respect & return it in a timely fashion, clean & in good working condition.

There will also be a summary about swarm controls.  Tis the season.
