Dig out your extra new and gently used beekeeping supplies to donate for the May Silent Auction. Baked goods, wax products, plants and seeds all welcome. Auction proceeds fund the Youth Scholarship Program while the equipment will benefit beekeepers!

Fellowship Hall at Graceway
5460 Blue Ridge Cutoff, Kansas City, MO 64133
Starting the evening off, we are having our Silent Auction (so bring your items for auction!) and our yearly Queen raffle. We will be hearing of the first year experiences from two of our scholarship students, Kyle Day and Riley Taranto! These young folks sometimes share the experiences that you and I would just never share with others!
Following the students we have Anastasia Becker from the Missouri Drift Watch Program. She will explain the what Drift Watch is and why it is important to beekeepers. She also is going to cover the Missouri Pollinator Conservancy Program! Anastasia is with the Missouri Dept. of Agriculture.
Also! Wes Johnston has wonderfully agreed to show us a couple of his woodenware enhancements! I encourage you to bring in a trick or a do-dad that you found makes beekeeping easier to share with us!
Don't forget to bring a donation for REAP!
