News and Events from the Cook-DuPage Beekeepers Association
March Membership Meeting
The Cook DuPage Beekeepers will hold their monthly meeting on the evening of March 15 at Christ Lutheran Church of Clarendon Hills, located on the northwest corner of Rt. 83 and 55th Street. The doors open at 6:30 pm and the meeting starts at 7 pm. Please come early and chat with fellow beekeeping friends.
Guest speaker Matt LaForge, Branch Manager Dadant Wisconsin, will be speaking on the current state of beekeeping as it relates to diseases and pests of the hive. Matt will also bring down any pre-ordered beekeeping supplies from the Wisconsin Branch at no charge for delivery. Call The Wisconsin Dadant store directly at 920-261-5363 to order your product for our meeting. If you order something for delivery to the meeting, please be at the meeting by 6:30pm to pick it up.
Pollen patties will be for sale in the bookstore at the meeting. Beekeepers with only a few hives can purchase individual patties instead of having to buy more than they need from a supplier.
** Bee package door prize – each club member attending this meeting will be automatically entered into a drawing for a free package of bees. You will have to pick them up in April.**

Cook-DuPage Beekeepers Mentoring Get Together
The next mentoring get together will be held on Sunday, April 6th at 8:00 am. The informal get together meets at the York Rd. McDonalds in Hinsdale. It’s a good opportunity to meet with other beekeepers in the area to “Talk Bees” and share some knowledge over a cup of coffee and an Egg McMuffin.
