June Meeting

Jason Sigmon, owner of North Star Bee Supply in Reidsville, NC will be our speaker for our June meeting.

Jason is 40 years old and in his 4th year of beekeeping. In addition to bee supplies, Jason sells mated queens and 5 frame nucs and will be sharing his methods for queen production and making up nucs with us. He will also be bringing some of his equipment he uses to graft with and giving us a little hands on feel for the processes he uses.

Jason currently manages around 50 colonies and enjoys teaching and helping others in the field of beekeeping.

As always there will be food, drink, and fellowship aplenty. Come on out and enjoy an educational program on June 7th at 7pm!!!
