President’s message (September 2021)

Happy New Year – at least the beginning of September always feels like a new year. The air is cool, the bees are home from their summer camps in fields of fireweed and it is time to move indoors. And that is our challenge!

At 7:00pm, Thursday September 9th, we will hold our club meeting indoors at the newly opened junior campus of Glenlyon Norfolk School (1701 Beach Dr [1]). We are limited in our numbers to 50 attendees who are wearing masks, with double vaccination recommended. (Our numbers have been about that for the past year, both on-line and in-person so those club members who are prepared to attend should find a seat waiting for them.)

A bit of background

As you will recall, the Gordon Head United Church property was sold and the new landlords have repurposed the building. We are searching for a new home for the CRBA. The club exec has contacted a number of locations with the common response being they are not ready to host new groups until they know what is happening with the existing groups who meet in their facilities. Glenlyon Norfolk School has offered us a new home and the facilities are impressive with state-of-the-art sound and projection systems, access to a breakout room for the New Beekeepers Corner and kitchen facilities for our social time. The only drawback is its location and that is why we are doing a test run for our September meeting.
