Thanks to all the members and guests who joined us for the CDBA virtual meeting on Saturday, August 21st. Stephen  Repasky  of Meadow Sweet Apiaries in Pennsylvania gave an interesting presentation about how he manages beehives in his apiary! Four lucky participants won some sweet bee-related giveaway items!
