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.

A beginning beekeeping class will be held the evenings of April 4, 11 and 18. Instructors will be Dan Williams, Bob Clark and David Crawford. Early sign-up is encouraged to avoid being closed out. Space, materials and resources are limited and the class has reached its limit every year. Last year it was full by mid-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. Contact David or Marie Crawford for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 740-477-2393
