Due to COVID-19 concerns, this year’s Annual Honey Judging Contest in November is not going to take place. It’s probably not the best time to get everybody together in a room and put something in our mouths.
Instead, we are planning to conduct another Q & A session with a panel of Master Beekeepers in a ZOOM meeting format with a moderator taking your questions from a chat room. After doing this for about an hour, we will officially end the session; however, if there are any of the facilitators that are able to remain online, we will go to ‘Brake-Out’ rooms and the membership will have the opportunity to ask specific MBKs in separate rooms questions and continue the conversation. IT’s been a long time since we’ve had a chance to hold one-on-one, interactive training so this is a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to get your questions answered by our ‘Resident Experts’.
This ZOOM meeting will take place during our regularly scheduled monthly membership meeting on Thursday, November 5th starting @ 7:00pm. You will be provided with a link to join the meeting. Any questions or problems connecting, contact: Kristine @ (781) 879-5155.
Another COVID-motivated change for December will be a BONFIRE in lieu of our normal Pot-Luck Christmas Party. This should be a refreshing change, which will allow socializing while social-distancing in a safer outdoor environment. We will not conduct the ‘Secret Santa’ event; however, in keeping with the holiday spirit, if some of our members would like to exchange gifts with other members, feel free to do so.
The BONFIRE event will take place on Saturday night, December 5th @ 7;00pm at Hodgie & Terry’s place at 1401 Land of Promise Road in Chesapeake. Eat before you come. TBA will be providing individually-wrapped SMORE ingredients. Bring your own lawn chairs and smore-roasting utensils.
MARK YOUR CALENDERS! – You don’t want to miss these events!
