September was an important meeting; we held a club election. We have a new club president, along with a few changes to the board of directors. Make sure you congratulate the voluteers who make all the magic happen.

We always enjoy having David Baker speak at our meetings. David spoke on mite control in August. His time and knowledge are deeply appreciated.

A big thank you to Luan Akin, Garden Ambassador of Tagawa Garden Center. Luan brought examples of hardy, bee friendly, beeeautiful perennials to our June meeting. As usual, this was a very popular presentation.

We appreciate Average Joe's many talents! 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.

Thank you very much 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.
