Toy Lambeth, Volunteer Services Coordinator, of the North Carolina Zoo sent the following request:
Subject: We Need More Beekeeper Volunteers
Good afternoon, Beekeeper Volunteers. I am looking forward to warmer days when the bees are buzzing and Volunteers are back at the Zoo. During the "off-season" I host monthly opportunities for new and prospective Volunteers to join our team.
I am reaching out to our active group of Beekeeper Volunteers asking you to share the attached with your local chapters to promote volunteer opportunities at the Zoo. You are our best source of advertisement and recruitment. I hope each of you will have an opportunity to share your experiences during one of your upcoming meetings, and encourage others to join us!

Contact Toy Lambeth for more information.
Doug Galloway, NCSBA Mountain Region Director, also weighed in on Toy's message, as follows:
I have Volunteered at the NC Zoo Honey Bee Pavillion for the last 3 years. It is a tremendously rewarding experience, helping others appreciate the remarkable honey bee and becoming a better beekeeper. If you would pass this email from Toy Lambeth and the attachment along to your chapter members, I would appreciate it and know they would enjoy the experience
All the best and thank for your service to beekeepers.
