    Betty's BirthdayJune 14th marked the 90th birthday of one of our founding members, Betty Beegle.  The Chattahoochee Valley Beekeepers Association is proud to have Betty as an active board member as well as an active beekeeping member.  At the June 13th meeting, her birthday was announced and her mentorship honored by member D. Roberts.  President P. Berry presented Betty with a delicious looking birthday cupcake, which prompted singing “Happy Birthday” and a huge round of applause by all.

    Betty’s father started “If & When Honey” in Whitesville, GA when she was a teenager.  This is still run on an honor system.  The CVBA holds their annual picnic at her farm.  To read more, check out this post from 2012.

    Reaching  a 90th birthday is a rare milestone especially in good health.  Betty celebrated her birthday at Callaway Gardens with a crowd of family members and by getting her drivers license renewed!
