For some time now, our association has been without a Chairperson. A number of volunteers have stepped in to help out but it is now time to have an elected Board to oversee the running of EOBA. David Grey (secretary/treasurer), Juliet Bancroft (newsletter editor and refreshment coordinator) and Pegi Holtz (program committee) have assisted in keeping the organization running. Thankfully there are some additional volunteers (Gordon Richardson, Anne Ladouceur, Ritchie Argue, Mike Keffer, David McGillvray) who have worked hard to prepare for this meeting. Please think about volunteering your time. There will be an election of officers at this meeting.
Fall Round-Up - Please be prepared to introduce yourself, mention your interest in beekeeping, and the location of your apiary (if you have one). This helps us to get to know you a little better.
