Our beloved Grange building is home to more than fun and community, namely a large heritage bee colony in the back wall. While we appreciate the importance of the honey bee and their importance in pollination, we need to relocate this hive before it does more damage to the structure. Luckily we’ve found a bee specialist from Veneta that will come and safely remove the bees, and process the honey and wax from the walls for the Grange to sell as a fundraiser.
This year’s booth at the Reggae festival & Garage Sale are dedicated to raising the needed funds, about $400, to have this done. We’ll be waiting until later fall in order to give the hive the best chance at a smooth transition.
