A new beekeepers club is being formed in Carlyle to serve beekeepers in the surrounding areas. The club will have its first meeting on Tuesday, April 15 at 7:00 p.m. at the US Army Corps of Engineers Visitors Center at Carlyle Lake. Club co-founder Andy Brethorst of Carlyle told us what to expect at the club’s first meeting.
“It’s going to be an organizational meeting, discussing the club itself, the model that we’re going to run with as well as presentations by Eleanor Schumacher on queen cells and a presentation on swarms by myself.
“New beekeepers are very welcome to attend the meeting, to meet other experienced beekeepers and ask questions into the topics they’re interested in learning about–as far as starting a hive, managing a hive, and also making the contacts necessary to be successful.”
Other items on the agenda including voting on a club name and collecting dues. Annual club dues will be $15 per person.
