Christmas Spirit - Ohio Honey

At our November meeting the association labeled over 375 - six ounce bears. The honey was bottled by individual club members and donated to the association. These bears were given to the LOCAL FOOD BANKS for distribution with Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets. We received "thank you" comments through members and this note.

Dear Sandusky River Valley Bee Keepers,

We would like to thank you for your generous donation of honey to the Bettsville Caring Hands Food Pantry.  Our Families we serve for the holidays will

 enjoy the special treat.

Here is another thank you we received:

Thank you very much. I live in Bloomville and received your honey in my food box. My husband and I had a wonderful meal of beans & turkey ham with cornbread with your great honey for Christmas. Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness and help.

Volunteers at the Republic, Ohio Food Bank hold some of the honey bears that were donated to the food bank.

The following pictures are from the meeting and work session to label the bears.  A lot of "bee" discussions and fellowship with other beekeepers go on during this meeting.  If you would like to be part of this worthwhile effort next year contact us.  If you are are interested in beekeeping we will be having bee classes in March.  Contact us using the webmaster email address or call any of the officers that are listed on the officers page.  If you are a beekeeper you are always welcome to attend meetings the first Monday of each month - February to December - (September - the second Monday)
