Since May 2011, we have had two beehives at the location of our monthly meetings. The hives were donated by Bob Livingston and he did the work on getting them in place with a nice fence. Thanks Bob!! We open them one time a month (the Tuesday of our monthly meeting at 5:30 pm) during daylight savings time.  Please bring your veil to the demonstrations.
