Brown County Beekeepers Association
Grant farm and Greenhouses was once again very kind to donate a hive for our fair booth raffle. The winner of the bee hive in 2015 was Mr. Engelhaupt of Engelhaupt Embroidery. Mark Honigman and B. Schafer were the winners of the 2 honey basket raffles.
Chris Dresel was re-elected president of BCBA for 2017. Mike Pasquale will remain VP, Chuck McCafferty will remain secretary and Jim Suhre will remain treasurer in 2017.
BCBA members were very busy at our Brown County Fair booth. We talked to many interested individuals about honey bees and beekeeping. We also sold a lot of local honey from our association members. .
Brown County Beekeepers Association cosponsored the third open honey show at the Brown County Fair on September 28, 2015. The show was once again a huge success. Tom House was the 2015 best of show winner with his chunk honey entry. Here is Tom working on his entry. The Best of Show $50 premium was donated by Bethel Feed and Supply.
