It will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, at Duke's Alehouse & Kitchen, 110 N. Main St. in Crystal Lake. The public is invited. Head upstairs at Duke's for information and inspiration, business and socializing. Talk about "greening" the future with others. You must be age 21 or older to purchase alcohol; nonalcoholic drinks are available.

Hawthorne will be speaking about the state of bees in McHenry County. Though he has been a beekeeper for 11 years and knows enough to recognize a honeybee from a wasp, he feels that he has only touched on the knowledge available on raising bees. He has harvested honey each year -- enough to cover out-of-pocket expenses. He is now learning how to make beeswax candles.

There will be an information table set up, and you are welcome to bring information about your green products and services each month to share. Additional parking is available at the train station.
