You won’t want to miss our June activities! Our regular meeting will be held on Thursday June 9th at 7:00 pm. at Martins on Staples Mill Rd. (see below for location information). We will hold a round-table discussion on what works, what doesn’t, and what you need to do. Our experts will be on hand to answer questions and give you a chance to share your bee stories. Come join the discussion!
And if you want to talk more…Come to the Richmond/Ashland Beekeepers Picnic
We have planned a terrific picnic for RBA members on June 12 at 4 p.m. on Hundred Acre Farm in Western Henrico. It’s a beautiful horse farm and we’ll have a 60 foot tent complete with tables and chairs, all compliments of member Rene Dosh and Theresa Johnson. This is a joint party with the Ashland Beekeepers, so you’ll meet a lot of beekeepers! Plenty of free parking. Free for members and their families. You won’t want to miss this! Rain or Shine! Directions: Go past 10915 OPACA Lane, Glen Allen 23059 and keep driving to the end of the lane where you’ll see the Big Tent!
We’ll have a menu of BBQ chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs off the grill of BBQ master Calvin Cauthorn who has worked at previous beekeeper picnics. Plenty of soft drinks. It would help if you bring a special dish (with serving utensil) to share. Dessert? Salad? We’ll have a wash station so you can clean up afterwards. But, no microwave.
GREEN: This is a NO TRASH event. Please bring your own Plates, Flatware, Napkins, Cups and a Bag to take them home in. We don’t want to leave any trash on-site.
FOR YOU TO DO: RSVP to TDKay@comcast.net with the number of adults and children. We need to know how much food to order. Questions? Call Theresa 370.1773
