PBBA Members: (From the Pres.) If you have any

ideas for a social gathering, an interesting place

to visit, or a workshop with a topic you would

like to focus on, please let us know about it.

The goal of our event's program is to provide "social" type programs, where ideas are exchanged, topics

of interest are presented, and we all have a great

time. While we will have a guest speaker from time

to time, we want to direct the majority of our funds

directly back to beekeeper support and assistance,

and into other areas such as the learning centers

program and expansion of the bee industry. Paying

a $600 fee for an hours worth of time for one

speaker, may be better spent on the members

through various other support opportunities.


If I could, we would have a pig roast each month

and a four hour evening social discussing bees

with everyone. At least that would get my vote. But

there are too many various programs for all of us to

enjoy. So let us know if you have any ideas. And

who will have that first pig roast.......

"An Evening Among Friends" Program

This program allows the PBBA to have socials

based on interesting topics and expertise from

the members themselves. We have many

interesting individuals, that have vast

experiences with nature, gardening, farming,

unusual bee operations, etc. Our goal is to

offer mini-socials throughout the summer

beyond our major event programs, to bring

together beekeepers to enjoy these wide

ranging topics of opportunity.
