January 2022 President's Message
Happy New Year to all my fellow beekeepers!
We have a new set of officers elected to Coweta Beekeepers Association (CBA) for the 2022 year, and we are so excited to bring some great education and fellowship your way.
2022 Elected Officers
Heather Shinn (President)
Corey Matheson (Vice President)
Marilynn Parker (Secretary)
Andy Anderson (Treasurer)

This is a reminder to all that we are meeting in person on a monthly basis; our next meeting is Monday, January 10, 2022, from 7:00-9:00 pm at our usual spot, UGA Extension Center (in front of the Coweta County Fairgrounds) at 255 Pine Rd Newnan, GA. We'd love to see all your smiling faces! Our speaker will be our newly elected VP Corey Matheson presenting "A Year in Beekeeping."

Our Introduction to Beekeeping course is coming up on January 29th, 2022. If you have taken the course, you know how wonderful it is! I ask all our newsletter folks to find at least one person to share our beekeeping course information with or sign up yourself if you haven't taken the course. You won't be disappointed! I've attached the sign-up sheet for you all to share. You can also find the registration form on our website
https://www.cowetabeekeepers.org/events-calendar/january-beekeeping-class/ or by visiting our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/160104037827852. Please like and share our post about the intro course.

As a new year's resolution for all our members and visitors, I challenge you to find a way of contributing to our club. This could include attending monthly meetings, presenting as a speaker, introducing yourself to new visitors, sharing your vast beekeeping knowledge, volunteering with CBA, or putting on workshops at your apiary just to name a few. We hope to continue to be a bright presence in our community and to spark interest in beekeeping in others all over Coweta County. Spread the word!

CBA is always open to hearing from you; please share your thoughts, ideas, and feedback on how we can continue to serve our fellow beekeepers. Please notify me if you'd like your email removed from CBA communications at cowetabeekeepersassociation@gmail.com.

Thank you,
Heather Shinn, President
