National Honey Bee Day




Category: Bees | Posted: Mon Aug 18, 2014 11:03 am

This past Saturday was National Honey Bee Day and our club sponsored an all day event to celebrate. We had guest speakers, vendors, a kids area, an observation hive, an open hive demonstration, food and a fund raising auction. I'm happy to say that we raised 2000.00 that will go to the University of Florida for bee research. It was a fun day spent with fellow beekeepers and we got to talk to plenty of beekeeper wannabees (pun intended).

What a wonderful day for your beekeepers' club! The university should send you a big thank you for your help and generosity.

What an excellent way to help the honey bees and have fun at the same time. Your funds will really help with research to save our bees.

I have never heard of Nat'l Honey Bee Day. You have my deepest appreciation for your efforts. I will put this on my calendar to promote it next year at my farmers market. Thanks for the help on behalf of all bee keepers and the heads up!
