Dear Fellow Beekeepers,

Our April 10th meeting will be at UW Stout. It will be Jim Burritt's research presentation on honey bee health. His presentation will start at 7pm. We will have short club business meeting starting at 6:30pm.
Hope to see you all on April 10th.

Here is the invite that was sent to area clubs:

A research presentation on honey bee health by Jim Burritt will be held at 7pm on April 10th, 2017 in room 110 of Jarvis Hall Science Wing on the UW-Stout campus. The information will pertain to efforts at UW-Stout and UW-Madison campuses to investigate the bacterium Serratia marcescens strain sicaria, a potential new threat of honey bees.

Links to the UW-Stout news release on the research and the publication follow. A map of the UW-Stout campus is attached (Jarvis Hall Science Wing is #16 on the map, and parking lot #18 should be a fitting location to park). Visitors should avoid parking in Disabled, Reserved (signed), No Parking Areas, Loading Zones and Meters, Yellow Zones, Groundsdisabled spots or A spots.  General parking spaces in lots 18, 24, and 29 will not be ticketed between 4 p.m. and 2 a.m.
