You do not have to be a member to attend. Meetings are the 4th Monday of the month (sometimes we skip May or December). Come early because beekeepers like to buzz around in front of the hive.
PLANNED SPEAKERS FOR 2018:
January - Randy Overton
February - Kent Williams
March - Dr. Clarence Collison, retired former Professor of Entomology and Head of the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at Mississippi State University. Dr. Collison is as approachable and authoritative as it gets for bee questions and answers, and always packs the house. Come early to get a comfortable seat. He will be talking to us about "Applying the Basics of Honey Bee Biology.”
April - TBA
May - Dennis Barry, Tennessee Beekeepers Association Regional Vice President for Eastern Tennessee and longtime Sevierville beekeeper. Dennis will talk to us about Honey Bee Diseases.
