A big thank you to Average Joe! Our guest speaker was Average Joe Komperda, at the April meeting. Joe's topic was Early Bees. If you missed it, you missed hanging out with the cool kids.

A big thank you goes out to Laura and Steve Benson for sharing the details of a new hive setup at the Wednesday, February 7, 2018 meeting, shared fun details about a new hive setup. The Bensons are well known for their honey production and are a wealth of knowledge on beekeeping.

We want to thank our guest speaker Don Studinski, at Southeast Beekeeping Club's December 6th meeting. Don is the author of Beekeeping Mentor In A Book. His topic of choice was Where Honey Bees Come From.

Don was a very fun knowledgeable speaker. We enjoyed his presentation. A special thank you to those who put a little extra in the bee-can to cover Don's speaking fee.

It was delightful once again to have the Ross Family perform at the SEBC December meeting. The are a great talent.

We did not have a meeting in January 2018.

Colorado State Beekeeping Association winter meeting is December 1 and 2, 2017, Join us Friday eve and all day Saturday at Island Grove Park, in Greeley CO. Check CSBA web site for more details.

The November SEBC meeting was November 1, 2017. It was an open forum meeting, filled with your stories, your questions, and your enthusiasm. A special thank you to all who came and participated.

The SEBC monthly meeting on October 4, 2017 was, as usual, great. Joe Komperda presented: An Average Joe's Guide to Overwintering Honey Bees (in the Colorado Front Range). Lots of Q & A ensued.

The silent auction held in in September was a great success. We made a donation in our own "Wild Bill" Harris' name in that amount to CALF of Douglas County. http://www.thecalf.org (Colorado Agricultural Leadership Foundation). Bill donated his time to this group of young people and the care of their bees.

A big thank you to Laura and Steve Benson for their presentation in September. If you have been attending beekeeping meetings, you probably know Laura and Steve. They keep dozens and dozens of hives, and sell gallons of honey each year.

The Benson's will present their take on all the important aspects of the honey harvest. Come with your questions, and be prepared to be get the insiders look at all the tips and tricks of a successful honey harvest. We hope to see you all there.

As usual we plan to have the best pot luck food in the region, to go along with the best beeks around. The usual meeting details are unchanged. Steve and Laura are a wealth of information about bees and honey! Don't forget about our pot luck that starts at 6:00 p.m., but you are encouraged to come a little earlier to help with the silent auction. Our meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.
