The Oregon State Fair August 26-Sept 5.
It is just about Fair time and there are many openings to help volunteer at the Oregon State Beekeepers Association booth. It is a great opportunity to share with the general public about the wonders of bees. Here is the volunteer link.
Also consider participating in the Honey and Products of the hive show. Here is the link with all the information on how to participate. For those of you participating in the OSU Master Beekeeping course, these are great ways to get participation points.
We meet on the second Thursday of each month at 7pm except in August (we have a picnic) and December (we have a party). We are now doing hybrid meetings so you can choose to come in person or participate via Zoom. We meet at The Source Church 505 E Clarendon St in Gladstone. Everyone is welcome to attend!
The July meeting was all about ways to harvest honey. We unfortunately had difficulties with the internet connection so it was not recorded
A special thanks to our raffle donors, including:
