Welcome to BVBeeks!

The Brazos Valley Beekeepers Association was formed in May 2014 as a club of hobbyist beekeepers in and around the Bryan/College Station area.  We welcome everyone to join our monthly meetings, which are usually held the 3rd Tuesday of every month. Check the club calendar for upcoming events and activities.

With the huge size of this year's Youth Program, we will need all those who can be an adult mentor to step up and volunteer.  The more people we have volunteer to help guide these kids, the less work will be placed on any single individual (I hope to limit every mentor to no more than 2 kids).   If you can help be a mentor, please contact Chris Barnes at youthdirector@bvbeeks.org.

The BVBeeks Annual Meeting & Christmas Party is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec 13, beginning at 6:30pm.   The only club business to be conducted will be the election of officers for upcoming terms.   The rest of the meeting will be the annual Christmas Party.  The club will be providing the main course - everyone else is asked to provide either a side dish or dessert.   We will be doing a gift exchange (limit it to $20 please).
Speaking of the elections, the positions up for election are President, Secretary, & Member at Large.  If you would be interested in running for one of the positions, or nominating someone, please contact Dalene Barnes, chairman of nominations committee, at dalene@txbarnes.com.

An amendment was proposed at the last club meeting to the Constitution & By-Laws.  This amendment will be voted on at the November meeting.   An updated proposal email will be sent out to the club email list before the next meeting.
