Odd E-mails from Cookeville Beekeepers

There have been a couple of odd looking emails sent from our account to our mailing list today - if you are reading this you probably got them. It seems likely that our mailchimp account has been hacked. Joy. I have already been in touch with mailchimp tech support. Please bear with us while we work it out. I don't think that this will negatively impact anyone other than the spammy emails, but in any event I will inform you about whatever happens. Thanks David LaFerney End of message - no need to click through.
