Southeast New Brunswick Beekeeper’s Association will be holding a Field day, Saturday, June 18th. Registration and coffee will be at 9:30 a.m. at the Salisbury Baptist Church, Main Street, Salisbury, N.B.

All beekeeper’s are welcome and we will have a very interesting and fun program for the day. This day will mainly be directed to helping new beekeepers or those who have been in beekeeping a short time. We will also have events for the more seasoned beekeepers. Everyone is welcome to attend!

I have invited two beekeepers from Nova Scotia, Tony Phillipps and Jerry Draheim to share their beekeeping knowledge with us and our Chief Apiary Inspector, Fletcher Colpitts and Mary Colpitts will also be there to answer any bee health questions you may have. We will have a indoor session early morning at the church and then we will move to George and Ruth Wheatley’s apiary where hives will be opened and analyzed. The ability to open a hive with experienced beekeepers is such a valuable opportunity to learn.

Please bring your lunch with you! Beverages and sweets will be supplied. If you don’t want to bring lunch, there is a Pizza place close to the church in Salisbury. Please bring your lawn chairs, bee jackets etc. There will be a $10 registration fee for non members.

If you think you want to become a beekeeper, come out and enjoy the experience. If you wish additional information, email me (evangelinemiel@hotmail.com) or phone me at (506) 388-5127.
