  • Photos? …What Photos?

    Date: 2012.04.17 | Category: Question | Response: 1

    Do you have photographs of any of our meetings?  We would like to see photos of the programs as well as the attendees.  Yes, it may take some effort to look up those old files, but rest assured, if we can use them, we will.  What about photos of the short course?  Picnic photos?  Insectival photos?  If you send us pictures of your grandkids, they better be doing something bee related…  just sayin’.
