GFWC-Gun Lake supports WMS beekeeping group

Audrey Bartlett (center), representing the Greater Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) – Gun Lake, presented Lori Howell (right), sixth grade science teacher, and Assistant Superintendent of Finance and Operations Pat Velie with a check for $1,465 to purchase bee friendly tree species.

The three women are submitting an Arbor Day grant application to acquire additional funding for the plantings.

Lori and Pat are co-assisting a new extra-curricular group, Beekeeping, at the Wayland Union Middle School.

The Wayland Board of Education approved the extra-curricular group that had hoped to begin beekeeping in a fun educational format for middle and high school students this spring, but has been pushed to next fall due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
