Next Meeting August 28th, 2014

2014/08/16 in Advanced Beekeeping, Education, General Beekeeping Info, General Club Info

Our next meeting will be held on August 28th, 2014, at our usual location, Fordham’s Farmhouse. (23657 Hwy. 80 East, Statesboro, Ga) The meeting starts around 5:30 pm. Come a little early to go through the line and get your supper!

Our speaker will be David Arnal. He will be speaking on “the beekeeping year” with, I think, an emphasis on maximizing honey production. David is the president of the Beaufort/Jasper County Beekeeper’s Association in South Carolina, and an exceptional presenter. I attended several of his classes at Oatland Island and was very impressed. This will be one meeting you will not want to miss!

FOR NEW MEMBERS AND FOR NON-MEMBERS (below):

For Members:

If you have requesed your new OABees.com account and free website,  I hope you are taking it for a “test drive.”  It’s so easy to edit, add info, put you pictures on the site and a lot more…

Here are a few tips to help you get started:

  1. Follow the directions on the “Getting Started” download. Please do this first to ensure your website’s security and the overall security and look of all of our websites.  Please only go into the parts of your Dashboard that are specified in the “Getting Started…” .pdf.
    .
  2. Tutorials to get your personal website “going” are very easy to follow. You may find the “WordPress Tutorials” on the OABees.com homepage in the right-hand sidebar.
    >> The four most important tutorials to begin with are, in order, Posts, Pages, Menus and Adding Pictures or Media to posts or pages. That’ll get you going and you’ll be able to go from there!

Have fun with your website!

For Non-Members:

If you’re not yet a member of our Ogeechee Area Beekeepers Association and consequently do not have your own personal OABees.com website, we have a nice solution for you!  Join our association today or at the next meeting and we’ll get you up and running in no time!.

Welcome to our new website & online community!

2013/07/02 in Website info

Welcome to OABees.com, the online home of the Ogeechee Area Beekeepers Assoc.  Our website is unique because it doubles as an online “community”!

When you join the Ogeechee Area Beekeepers Association, you may request to be registered on our new website which includes your own website as a part of the online community.  Your website will be super easy to customize.  You may add pages, news posts, stories, pictures and more to show everyone your bees, hives, farm, property, family, etc.  Please use our contact form to make the request.

You may also comment on other members pages, posts and pictures, interact with other members online and more.   In the near future, we’ll have a forum (threaded bulletin board) to further everyone’s education and interaction with your fellow beekeepers.

We all look forward to seeing other members’ sites – see the “Members’ websites” links in the right-hand sidebar.

Have fun with this!

John/Webmaster
