The 2012 Beginning Beekeeping Class was a resounding success!

We had 77 folks attend Monday and Thursday night and 60 folks attend Tuesday night (with all the rain!).  Over 50 books were sold for the class.

Special thanks to all the folks that helped out!!! 
This includes our teachers Jon Zawislak with the UA Cooperative Extension Service, Betty Scott with the Arkansas Plant Board Apiary Section and Harvey Johnston our CABA program chair. 
Melissa, Betty, Betty, Connie, and crew put together some wonderful snacks as well as setting up and breaking down the break area. 
Also thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Steve Homes donating an assembled and painted bee hive for a door prize for this course as well as several door prizes donated by CABA members. 
We hope the folks who attended become members and attend our monthly meetings.  If you would be willing to Mentor folks, please let me know so I can add you to our mentor list.
