Saw the Chat Room post by Tecumseh that said the bee school went well. Well, it was better than that!
There were folks there that had absolutely no previous knowledge about bees, and were more than just a little apprehensive. After listening to the presenters and seeing Tec's hive examination, they were ready to have a go at it.
There was one woman who was a bit afraid of the bees, but then she saw a bee emerge...couldn't get her away from the hive. It was a great day for all.
Except, Iddee, that the listing for Crystal Coast Beeks is wrong! Ray Harris used to be the Extension Agent in Carteret County but has retired and Anne D. Edwards is now agent. The extension office has pretty much handed the deal over to us, now, and the present contact for the club is either me or President Russ Lewis.
