Hello WCOBA Members!

Hello WCOBA club members!  Casey Reed here, club secretary, sending you all a shout out from Dwight Wells, club president. He wanted to give you a heads up that the monthly club meetings are coming soon and also to let you know about some of the other future club "happenings" this spring. I am sure that you all are very busy organizing your colonies for the spring honey flow. I hope that you all had a good winter and your colonies, with our mild winter hopefully you had a 100% winter survival rate, but if not, or you are starting new colonies, they are building up slowly and steadily.

WCOBA will be meeting at the Troy Hayner Cultural Center on Thursday, April 19, from 6:30-9:00pm. You can visit this website: http://www.troyhayner.org for info about the Hayner and directions. WCOBA will also be meeting at Cedar Bog Nature Preserve on Thursday, April 26, from 6:30-9:00pm. You can visit this website: http://ohsweb.ohiohistory.org/places/nw02/index.shtmlfor info about Cedar Bog and directions.  Also, you can go to www.wcoba.comto see other happenings at our club, we are almost as busy as bees!

We also wanted to tell you about our informal meetings that we just got started, our Beekeeper Breakfasts, every 2nd and 4th Monday morning 9-11am at various restaurants in and around Troy. We met already this month at the Troy Frisch's, but we would like to move the location to allow for a Wi-Fi connection, so April 23 we will meet at the Troy Panera Bread.  This is a completely informal meeting where we just eat, chat, and try to get club activities and "to do" lists in order for things like the Ohio Queen Initiative, Master Beekeeping program participants, and organizing our club's participation in Ohio's festivals/fairs/farm science review. All are welcome, just shoot Casey or Dwight an e-mail to let us know how many seats to reserve at the restaurant. Keep an eye on www.wcoba.comto know the exact location of the next Beekeeper Breakfast.

Do you know other beekeepers who might be struggling to find answers to difficulties in their colonies? WCOBA club meetings are an excellent way to network and to make connections with people who are like-minded in their beekeeping philosophies. Please, extend an invitation to anyone you know who is interested. Our club motto is "Beekeepers Helping Beekeepers" we are here to help!  We hope to see you around at one or more of the upcoming activities, but if you are too busy with your colonies….or just life….then we wish you well and a successful summer beekeeping!  Kind Regards, Casey Reed
