Together again.
Rest in peace dear friends, you are missed.
The beginning beekeeping class offered 
by Scioto Valley Beekeepers 
will be held the evenings of April 6, 13 and 20, 2022.
Each night reviews a different subject, so it is important to attend all three nights.

Space is limited and the class has reached capacity most years before early-March.

Cost is $60 per person and includes a reference book, handouts, classroom instruction, beeyard experience, a one-year membership in SVB and a one-year membership in the Ohio State Beekeeping Association. 

Those interested should send an email to sciotovalleybeekeepers@yahoo.com for registration form and further information.
