Jana Howard gave a short talk on having a representative from the beekeepers club talk to the Rock Island City Council to educate them on bees. They destroyed a hive on church grounds instead of having it moved. Their next meeting is August 28 at 6 p.m. Kriss will contact Daryn and Peter to see if they are willing to talk to the council. They will take the Wenatchee Bee Ordinance.
There are people in the valley who have offered to keep bees for us on their property and small orchards. Kriss forwards names and numbers to club members.
Many thanks to Kristin Taylor for taking notes in my absence.
