Meeting Update - February Now...
Our next meeting will be held February 27th - we promise. We had to change the date again when we inadvertently scheduled in conflict with the NJBA meeting. This adjustment also required us to switch venues. We'll be at the County Administration building on Route 12 just outside of Flemington. This is the same complex as the main Hunterdon Library. The meeting will start at 10am. Check your email and here for any additional updates and sorry for the confusion.
On Tap: Two queen systems, A live Lip Balm demonstration from beeswax, and honey tasting (see the note in the next column)
February Meeting Honey Tasting Notes
At our February meeting we'll be hosting a honey tasting. We'll have honey on hand of various varietals - Tupelo, Sourwood, Buckwheat, some of our local varieties and others. You can participate also. Bring a sample of your honey in a Honey Bear. We'll provide little spoons for everyone to get a chance to sample the differences.
It is time for the annual membership renewals. Please complete your renewal by clicking this link. Here you can print the document and mail it in to the address of our branch treasurer.
Please take the time to renew early, it really helps out administratively!
