NARFE hears from bee keeper

Chapter 0813 of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees met on July 16 at the Ponderosa Steakhouse in Greensburg for its monthly meeting. The meeting was opened by president Eva Stone welcoming those present and followed with Kay Hineman leading the group with the Pledge of Allegiance and the invocation.

For the monthly program President Eva Stone introduced John Miller from Rising Sun of the Southeastern Indiana Bee Keepers Association. Mr Miller gave a program on maintaining honey bee hives throughout the year. He had a typical hive with the inserts with photos of the different stages of hive growth and photos of the different pests of hives. There are many pests that can destroy hives. Some interesting facts are that the hive is controlled at around 94 degrees by the bees flapping their wings inside the hive and the queen being nothing more than an egg laying machine with the workers moving her around to do her work and at least once a year a new queen is selected.

For Indiana, bee research is conducted at Purdue Universary. Miller noted that the honey bee is not native to North America. The brands of honey in stores is pasteurized, while using unpasteurized honey, some individuals may have an allergic reaction to the honey. Thanks to Mr. Miller for his informative program.

Following the program, a business meeting was held with the secretary’s minutes and treasurer’s report being read and approved. Other chapter business had the legislative officer, service officer and other committee reports given.

The attendance prize was won by Roselyn McQueen. The birthday of Pat Springman was acknowledged with the singing of Happy Birthday.

The next meeting will be at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20 at the Ponderosa Steakhouse in Greensburg with optional lunch following the meeting.

If you are a retired employee or currently an active employee and have an interest in attending chapter meetings, join us at our next meeting.
