If you are a new or old beekeeper with equipment to build, bring it with you (don’t forget the nails). The 2018 scholarship students will be building their equipment at this event as well.
Nothing to build? No worries! Join us for the pot luck. Please remember to bring a pot luck item and a chair. After the building portion we will gather for a relaxed meal and catch up with one another.
If you have any of the following, we would appreciate you bringing it:
- hammer or pneumatic air gun
- quick grip
- wood glue
- frame jig
Our amazing Vice President, Brian Nilson, has graciously offered one of his buildings for this to take place in Marquette. Marquette is about 10 miles north of Aurora, Nebraska. Thanks, Brian!

We have our October Meeting planned and we want to see you there!
When: Sunday Oct 9th 1:00pm
Where: Charlie Simonds apiary – Honey Bee World, 12805 Rokeby Road, Bennet, NE. It is just south of Highway 2 between 120th and 134th Streets Southeast of Lincoln.
What: Charlie will be showing us best practices for overwintering your bee hives. Bring your protective equipment as we will be around live hives.
*Attn Scholarship students and new beekeepers** this is a great learning experience for you as you get ready to put your hives away for winter. Having strong colonies going into winter sets you up for next year!
As always, these events are also open to the public. If you have a friend who would like to come, forward them this email or bring them along!
