Summer's heading back south — after a short, hesitant visit. Time to get back to work. Enthused or ambivalent? (You might be eager if you have a place like BEAHIVE to work at!)

Actually, we never really stopped working. We're entering our fifth month with a pretty good rhythm, steadily increasing in tempo. Just look at the sidebar for the whole host of events scheduled for September — including our regular film and game nights, a visioning workshop, a new monthly solopreneur sounding board group (still working on the name), BACA's monthly meeting, and a health workshop for pre-, post- and menopausal women. Some are only for members, some are open to all.

BEAHIVE on MeetupDetails on the events calendar on our site — or on the new Meetup group we just created. We continually hear folks lament missing one of our events because they forgot. Join the Meetup as another way to get reminders of the specific events that interest you.

And mark them in your calendar of choice!

Kelly KingmanNow, an exciting announcement. To help Scott (founder) manage all of this buzziness and the many more plans we have in mind, Kelly Kingman flies in to help the hive. Until a couple weeks ago she was photo editor at the newsweekly The Week. Their loss, our gain.

You probably know Kelly as the founder of our beloved Beacon Citizen Network. She's also a freelance writer and budding entrepreneur. Now that she's fully independent, watch for a bigger presence around the Hudson Valley (see Member Bzzz below for a couple of her myriad projects).

Finally, in last month's Bzzz we included some pics from the HV Real Food tasting event in July. Now we have a nice little video ditty for you, courtesy of our friends The Vaccinated Society. Member Anne Dailey is a rock star!

New member: Peter Stemmler, vector and pen illustrator, partner in QuickHoney, whose impressive agency and editorial client list makes you wonder if they do anything besides work. He and his family just moved to Beacon from... Berlin. Willkommen.

Nora Olsen
just sold her first young adult novel, a story about five gay teenagers who travel through time to save the world. More information forthcoming after the contract is signed.

Two of the aforementioned Kelly Kingman's current projects:

  • A retail venture called Clay Wood & Cotton opening this month at the former 400 Square space (149 Main St.) and online. Featuring handmade accessories for the home by both local and national artists. Join their Facebook page to stay up to date on the launch.

"I've worked out of my home successfully for a year now, but find that I am significantly more productive when I take my work to BEAHIVE. The combination of an engaging and talented membership, and a clean, accessible and well-designed space, has had noticeable and positive effect on the way I work, and the quality of work I produce." (Anne Dailey, freelance writer and local foods activist)

"Madam Brett Park." (Nora Olsen, writer)

Join the hive. Rent the hive. Hire the hive. Engage.

You can remove scottlt@aol.com at any time. But if you like what we're sending, please spread the bzzz by forwarding. (If it was forwarded, you can subscribe here.) You can also update your BEAHIVE Bzzz profile.
