Bruce has decided to give up beekeeping for a time. Eventually, he’ll be moving to another state and he plans to pick it up again when he gets there. Meanwhile, he has made an amazingly generous donation to NCBA. As a result, we will be auctioning off a 10-frame hive at the October meeting. This is my way of 1. encouraging members to attend our elections meeting and 2. rewarding members for reading our volunteer recognition. Bidding will start at $1.00 and all the proceeds will go into our NCBA scholarship fund.
