      Angie, Sorry you cant make it. I do not believe there will be a change of dates, it is so hard to find a date and line up a place. But i will propose another bee school probably in April on the Cape (not as close; i see you are on No. Shore). It will be posted here.

      Angie, hope you can make it this time. Snow storms have a good side sometimes.

    Is there a 'snow' date or will the class happen regardless of weather?
