Bringing bees, beekeepers & bee people together
We hope to meet you again this year to "talk bees" at the SKBA booth in the Outdoor Agricultural Display Area. Last year, a wonderful time was had by all - booth staff and visitors young and old. No one was too young or too old to get a sticker for "spotting the queen" at the observation hive. Some of our members also earned service points for Journeyman certification while enjoying the fellowship of beekeepers, staffing the booth, explaining the demonstration hive, and demoing. Two Journeyman candidates handled honey entries in Bldg. 500 and served as honey taster judges: Gina Cuff and Minh Cao.
We were represented at the indoor Agricultural Display in Bldg. 500 by our scarecrow entries, Honey Bandit Bear and Pumpkinhead Hornet Trapper.
