York County Beekeepers Association

Hello Beekeepers!

  Our last YCBA meeting for the year 2015 will be this Thursday, November 12, starting at 6:30 PM at 1188 Edgefield Rd.  We have a special guest speaker joining us whom we believe will be very inspirational to all who attend.  
Brandon Deitz was the recipient of the South Carolina Jr. Beekeeper of the Year 2015 at our summer conference in Clemson.  He is an accomplished beekeeper who is now employed by Eric Mills, a commercial beekeeper who pollinates crops all over the country.  We believe you will enjoy his presentation on Thursday night.  Please come join us as this is a very important meeting.
