Observation Hive Donated at Meeting
At our April 10th meeting, Jim Ellis, on behalf of the CVBA was very proud to accept a beautiful observation hive from Jerry Slaughter, who is a member of our bee club and also owns Cold Creek Bee Co. This is an Ulster observation hive and will be very useful whenever we do presentations. An observation hive is always a big hit and this type will make it quite easy to take the bees for demonstrations. Paul Berry submitted an application to Jerry for our club, and this resulted in our being granted this terrific piece of equipment. The CVBA works to promote sustainable beekeeping and encourage awareness and protection of the honey bee. Having an observation hive at our disposal is a terrific asset. Thank you Jerry!
Our speaker at this meeting was very informative. Bear Kelly gave a great presentation on “Honey, the Inside Story.” Among other things, he is currently taking a course to be an official honey judge. We would like to invite you to our annual picnic and our honey contest. Thank you Bear, for taking the time to speak to our group!
