Part of Keldyn's introduction and acceptance presentation to the EFBA at our

March General Meeting:

"For me beekeeping sounds like a grand adventure.  I've been raised to embrace adventure and be on the lookout for chances to grow.  That's what I see this as.  I want to learn and use this time to meet new people, glean ideas and help my family all at the same time.  It is my intention to grow from one hive into several as I learn to manage bees, their habits and behaviors.."
