April Meeting: Candlemaking PLUS Hive Auction

Past Event

April 12, 2016, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Q&A Session 6:45pm
The Point (at C. C. Young Campus)
4847 W. Lawther Dr, Dallas, TX

Join us to learn about turning your beeswax into beautiful candles. Blair Clark of Lone Star Candle Supply will be joining us to talk about candlemaking basics, including equipment and safety. Put your beeswax to good use!

More about Lone Star Candle Supply: Lone Star Candle Supply is a family-owned business in Keller, started in 1999. Lone Star Candle Supply serves candle makers all across the country, from small crafters to large manufacturers, by offering a large selection of high-quality candle-making supplies. We stock everything needed for you to produce beautiful, highly scented candles.

PLUS we will be auctioning off a beekeeping starter kit (see photo), including a gently used Langstroth hive with hive stand, screened bottom board, brood box with 10 frames and foundation, inner cover, and top, plus a smoker and bee suit (size medium or small). Proceeds will benefit the TVBA scholarship fund. This starter kit would be worth about $200 retail, and the auction benefits a great cause, so bring your wallet!

The Q&A Session starts at 6:45. Come early to get your beekeeping questions answered by our more experienced members in a more informal setting.

Also, we will have our “Bee Plant of the Month” and Alan Eynon with our monthly “In the Hive” to refresh your memory of the beekeeping seasons. We will serve light refreshments and feature a fun selection of beekeeping-related door prizes. See you there!
