Here we are - SEASON FIVE :)
« on: February 15, 2008, 06:33:40 AM »
Hi to all :)

Each year I try to bring a short update on how well we are doing, and as we start our 5th year - I have to say we are bigger, better and always expanding the services to our membership. Speaking of which, our membership has grown and continues to out do previous months in member count, post counts, replies and the continuing growth of our voice and text chat forum.

To everyone, you have all contributed your time, effort and many have helped financially to assure the future of our site - your friendliness toward other members has greatly separated us from many other forums across the Internet. I have great faith that we will continue to prosper as an International and peaceful forum for decades to come.

To everyone in the Mod staff, you know how important you have been to our cause, honestly I could never thank you enough. To the newer members, I hope you continue to return to Beemaster Forums and to our dedicated group of long-time members, thank you so much for your every continuing sharing of knowledge.

Five years in inspiring, a milestone to the testiment of how striving for a family atmosphere is achievable and to how when such a place is found on the Internet, it often becomes home for so many people. I'm honored that our simple goals have grown into the place we dreamed of many years ago. And looking into the future, I'm excited that everything looks promising for the forums.

To all, may year number 5 be all that I dream it will and may we all have many many more wonderful years together.

Sincerely,

John (Beemaster)

Thank you John for having the vision to get this thing rolling in the first place. I can think of much worse addictions then this site! Happy 5!

John, when I see a post from you, I love to read it.  You have a gift for writing, you make us feel good, I love that.  You and our Moderators have created and maintain a place that is something to behold.  If ever there were a space in time that I could call safe, full of love and warmth, full of good friends and good times, I would call Beemaster.com this place.  I feel honoured to be a member here, and thank my lucky stars for that day when my Husband mentioned that there was a bee forum I should look at, I did -- and I was hooked. 

Five years and goin' strong.  Thank you yourself, and thanking the Moderators, and all our forum friends and participants.  Have a beautiful, day, beautiful life, and plain and simple beauty in all we do.  Cindi

I truly appreciate being able to come here and get the help I need. I could not have done this hobby without the help of this forum.

Thanks again

It has been a great year so far. The chats with Don(fatbeeman) should go to include other notables.
