New Beekeeping Club In Montana
I am presently attempting to organize a new beekeeping club for western Montana. As I have absolutely no experience with this kind of endeavor, could you please give me some basic advice, tips, and information as to how this should be accomplished? Thank you very much.

Yours very truly,
