News from the President
The Sourwood flow was a very good year for many beekeepers in our area. I hope your bees are doing well.
Congratulations to the winners of our 2019 Best Tasting Spring Honey in McDowell County contest! With 20 submitted honeys and 70 tasters, this was our largest contest to date.
We are looking forward to a fun and productive 2020. The executive board is busy lining up some informative speakers and bee school planning is in progress.
