The June meeting was at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds a week early…Apologies from web wrangler for not getting a post up in a timely manner.

Alameda County Fair  Starts July 16th
Many thanks to Judy Kovacovich, Judy Casale and Bob Baty for stepping up to organize the Fair Booth again this year.  As usual, our June meeting will be at the Fairgrounds to brainstorm and build the booth.  We won several Best Of…. awards last year, which brought in around $900 for the club.  The theme for this year’s exhibit is “Best Summer Ever”. Building the booth is lots of fun, and so is greeting and talking about bees with the public!  As a bonus, volunteers who staff the booth receive free admittance on that day.
