5.25.2023 Memorial Day

Dear Friends

Memorial Day is already almost here! I have no celebratory plans, and instead look forward to a relaxing day of brunch, a long walk, and an enjoyable yet futile attempt to catch up on some reading. Amidst my rest and the celebrations I will remind myself of the solemnity of this holiday. First held just after the Civil War and known as Decoration Day, this is a day for remembrance and honoring those who have died in past wars. 

For those of you so inclined, please see this link for VA volunteer opportunities in Maine. 

Be well,

PS Our bees have built 6 new queen cells! A new queen is on the way!
