For 2013 BCBA will be awarding 5 cash wards of $200, and 3 complete beginner hive kits through TBA. Applications for both grants will be available at the January meeting.

As in the past, each grant recipient will be assigned a mentor, so the Directors maybe calling on members to assist in this program as a mentor to a new beekeeper. We will also be continuing the new beekeeper classes that will begin shortly after the New Beekeeper Short Course in February.

If you would like more information on the classes, or would like to sign up as a mentor to a new beekeeper, please see Stacey Adair, or phone her at 983-6223.
