Hello Fellow Beekeepers,

IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you ordered bees through the club, our bee supplier gave us a tentative date of SUNDAY, APRIL 12TH for our bees to arrive. THIS IS NOT 100% FIRM YET. We will let you know via Facebook and our website once we have a firm date. As soon as we know, we will also let you know the time and place where to pick up your bees. 

I would like to invite you to our next monthly Beekeepers meeting on Monday, April 13th,  at 7p.m..

ATTENTION: We will meet in room 116 at the Menomonie Alliance Church, 502 21st St N, Menomonie, WI 54751. (3 blocks north of the Hospital on 21st ST).

This month's speaker will be Chad Alberg. He is a wildlife specialist with the USDA APHIS Wildlife Services. He will talk to us about bears and the bear population in Northern Wisconsin. He will give us insights on their behavior patterns and do and don'ts when you come in contact with a bear. 

In addition we will show you the equipment you will need to set up a proper electrical fence. Jennifer B will walk you through the steps on how to build your own "bear fence".

No lunch.

Hope to see you all Monday, April 13th.
