Our September 1 meeting brings our Annual Meeting. Two important events normally happen at this time, our ELECTIONS for our Board Officers and Trustees and also the NUC DRAWING.
Additionally, this year’s September meeting also brings another opportunity for our active members. RANDY OLIVER will be our guest speaker. In lieu of our Members-Only Summer Picnic, our September’s meeting is a Member-Only event. If you are not yet an active member, you too have an opportunity to join us and see renowned beekeeping expert Randy Oliver on September 1.
We are taking nominations for the 2021 Board Officers and Members at Large positions. Whether you would like to nominate yourself or another active member, we are accepting nominations for:
- Vice President
- 2-3 trustees
To nominate yourself or another member, email Diane at [email protected].
Our annual Nuc Drawing is normally held at the September meeting. With Covid-19, there have been many changes we all have experienced including the apiary, which has not been operating in normal fashion. So, this year we do not have an actual Nuc to raffle off. Instead the club will purchase a “Nuc Gift Certificate” from Snohomish Bee Company and raffle that off this year. The Nuc itself will be available for pickup at the Snohomish Bee Company in Spring 2021.
- Each currently active member household will receive one ticket in the raffle.
- For these currently active members, who renew their membership (for 2021) by August 31, 2020, you will receive an additional ticket for this year’s Nuc raffle. (Two chances to win.)
- Those who are currently inactive and join by August 31st, 2020 will receive a ticket for this year’s Nuc raffle.
The drawing will occur at our September 1, 2020 meeting after Randy Oliver’s presentation during our club announcements between 8:00 – 9:00 PM on our Zoom call. You must be present on the Zoom call to win.
