We will have Brutz English as our speaker next week, Monday, November 16 at 7PM.  He will talk to the clubs about honey show competitions.  For those that don't already know him, he has been the master of ceremonies for show competitions at GBA meetings and Young Harris College-UGA Beekeeping Institute for a number of years.  He is a Senior Honey Judge under the Welsh honey show system, Georgia Master Beekeeper, and serves on the Board of Directors of the GBA, and runs the Liberty Hill Honey company (https://www.libertyhillhoneyco.com/).    

Due to COVID-19 this meeting will be hosted online to assist in social distancing. The link for the ZOOM meeting will be sent through email to paid members. Anyone who would like to pay dues may reach out to Barbara Read (for check payment) or Cory Momany (for Venmo payment).
