Sussex County Beekeeping Association 

Next Meeting:

Dear SCBA Member-

I’m sure many of you have been anticipating this note, but after conferring with the Executive Board, it saddens me to announce that we will be cancelling the March membership meeting which was to be held next Tuesday, March 24th. I would prefer to err on the side of caution as the majority of our members are of a “certain” age, or may have under lying health issues, and should not be exposed to the potential risk. I want to thank Justin and Emma Pullis for having agreed to speak on the subject of “Cold process” soap making, and it is my hope that we may reschedule them for a later date.

Please remember that the April 1st deadline for purchasing nucleus colonies (nucs!) is fast approaching. On our website, scroll to the bottom of the page and carefully download and follow the directions for nuc orders. The form is also attached here for your convenience.

Bee Well,
Tom Makoujy
SCBA President
