News from the President

Happy New Year!

We've polished up the website to make navigation and photo uploading easier. Hope you like the changes!

We are looking forward to a fun and productive 2020. The executive board is busy lining up some informative speakers and bee school planning is in progress.


As of December 27, there are already 40 students registered for school this year. We're hoping for record number of participants and to make it a great success, we'll needs lots of help! Look for pleas for help from Karen shortly. 

Please bring any donations for the Silent Auction to the January 9 club meeting. Mickie Revis has already started collecting some great items, but many more are needed. 

See you on the 9th!
