The Women’s Connection Council is all a buzz about starting up again on Tuesday, April 26, after two long years without seeing their members. Their first feature speaker will be Steve Clifford of Halfmoon Honey who will talk about his 40-year career as a commercial beekeeper, as well give tips for the honey bee hobbyist in our area. If you have thought of having a bee hive in your garden, interested to learn more about bees or simply love honey, this will be an intriguing and educational meeting. At this time, the WC will be accepting donations instead of the usual fees. All current B.C. COVID protocols will be followed. The Women’s Connection is a wonderful way to meet other women if you are a newcomer to Pender Harbour and to be informed of what is happening in the community with interesting speakers and events. Doors open at 9:45 a.m. Presentation at 10 a.m.
