Dec. 11 Meeting topic: a Minot Beekeeper in Vietnam

Hi folks—

As you might know, I spent 9 weeks in Vietnam this fall as a volunteer consultant to a new university.  But while there I took photos, trying to capture both the stunning vitality of modern Vietnam, and also its very threatening environmental issues, from the air pollution problems of having a population of 100 million people largely using two-cycle scooter and motorbike engines for transport, to very ominous sea rise: Vietnam’s usable land area is tabletop flat with only tiny elevations above sea levels.

So our Dec. 11 program will be a little different: a PPT show on my stay, with some attention to agriculture and bees in Vietnam.

Desserts and coffee as usual.  6:30 for business meeting and hive check-in (with a call for requested program topics for 2020), program at 7.  At the West Auburn Congregational Church vestry, 811 West Auburn Rd.
