There is an old tradition among beekeepers to “Tell the Bees” whenever a change happens in the beekeepers family. We lost our friend, Dan Cottrell on September 15, 2013. He was a successful beekeeper for several years in Pickaway County, Vice President of Scioto Valley Beekeepers and helped with the honey extraction demonstrations at the Lithopolis Honey Fest for the last four years. Dan also designed the club’s logo. He will be sadly missed by a host of family and friends.
