Chimacum Grange: 9572 Rhody Dr. (Hwy 19), Chimacum, WA

Greetings to members, prospective members, and guests!

The next meeting of 2022 takes place June 11th at the Chimacum Grange, 9572 Rhody Drive (Hwy 19), Chimacum, right across the highway from the Tri-Area Community Center and Chimacum Schools.

The board meeting will be at 9:30 a.m., and the general meeting will be from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. 

Discussion and presentations at the general meeting will begin where we left off last month with helpful tips about receiving your bees and then “what to do next,”  including inspections, watching for signs of an impending swarm, and more.   

We’ll have a special presentation from Grant Simpson about his very effective DIY swarm-collecting apparatus.

Plus, there’s always time for your questions!  And don’t forget, you can find other helpful tips and articles, photos, and videos on this blog site—take some time to browse!

In the meantime, the Beginning Beekeeping Course finished up with the last two classes (9-10) presented on April 9 at the Grange, and the final course activity, the hands-on apiary visit at two different locations: Quilcene and Port Townsend–find a few photos from that enjoyable day below in the gallery.

We hope to see you all on June 11th for our regular monthly club meeting.
