The October meeting the Orange Blossom Beekeepers Association is going to be one of the most special meetings we have ever had. We always get contacted by schools and teachers who want us to come out and give a lecture to their students about beekeeping. Unfortunately, we cannot often do that so the last time we received a request we advised them that their students could come to our meetings and meet with us there. They love that idea!
Thursday October 20th, 2016, at 7 o'clock p.m. at the Orange County Extension offices located at 6021 South Conway Road, Orlando, FL 32812. We currently do not have a room to hold a meeting so unless one becomes available we are going to meet outside behind the exhibit hall at the picnic table. We are going to be joined by a small number of children in Middle School who are going to ask questions about beekeeping! This is a great opportunity for those of you who are beginner or brand new and want to learn more. As you know kids ask the best questions!.
If you could please bring a foldable chair, or a couple of camp type chairs that would be greatly appreciated. Unless the room becomes available we may have to sit outside on the concrete. So bring a chair share a chair!
If you have any questions please write them down and bring them with you too. This is not just for kids this round-robin question and answer meeting is for everyone!
See you on October 20th.
Membership is $15 per household. Although additional contributions are always welcome.
Free meetings, free work workshop, use of extractor.
