Next Tuesday's Meeting
In 2011 Ann and Jeff Ross discovered a colony of honeybees had made a home in the wall of their mechanical workshop in Beerburrum. Many people might have followed the advice of friends and called in the pest control but having come from a family of apiarists; Jeff coaxed the bees into a box and before long bees and honey had become their passion.
Ann’s new-found interest in bees and her love of stingless native honey meant it wasn’t long before there were eight thriving colonies in the backyard. What happened next launched Hive Haven in a new direction toward saving both our stingless native bee.
Ann Ross will be presenting to us next Tuesday morning.
ShelterBox with Rotary responding to earthquakes in Indonesia
ShelterBox is working closely with Rotary in Indonesia.  We have great support from Rotary in Lombok, support from the Governor and also connections with Rotary in Jakarta.  We have dispatched a ShelterBox Response Team who are ready to undertake an assessment to determine if we can provide assistance.   Rotary will be invaluable in helping us get through the barriers in conducting our assessment in-country and providing support if it is required.  
For a video briefing on the recent earthquake in Indonesia visit our special update from ShelterBox here.
