Dear Local Bee Enthusiast,
Happy New Year from the Bennington County Beekeepers Club! 2015 brought changes to the club, including a new slate of officers voted into office at last April’s meeting and an increase in club dues from $10 to $15, which was unanimously approved by the club’s membership at our September meeting. Since 2016 has just begun, we’re writing to wish you beekeeping success in the coming year and to ask that you pay the $15 necessary for membership in our club.
You may pay your 2016 dues in one of three ways:
1) Send a check for $15 (payable to “Bennington County Beekeepers Club”) through the U.S. mail to the club’s treasurer:
P.O. Box 175
Petersburg NY 12138
2) Come to the club’s next meeting on Thursday, January 14th at 7 pm in the Crispe Room of the Vermont Veterans Home, where you can pay your $15 dues either in cash or by check.
3) Attend the club’s annual Short Course in Beginning Beekeeping, where you can pay your $15 dues either in cash or by check. The Short Course will take place at 7 pm on five Thursdays from late January through early March (1/28, 2/4, 2/11, 2/25, and 3/3 with a snow date of 3/10) in the Crispe Room of the Vermont Veterans Home.
We greatly appreciate your support of both the bees and the beekeepers in our local area and thank you for your on-going contributions to the Bennington County Beekeepers Club!
Jeanne Davis, President
Jim O’Clair, Vice President
David Sicko, Treasurer
Julie Cassiday, Secretary
