Welcome to Crossroads Beekeepers

The Crossroads Beekeepers meets on the 2nd Monday of the month in the basement of the University of Illinois Extension Center, 1209 N. Wenthe, Effingham, Illinois.  Meetings run from 6:30pm to 8:00pm and are open to the public. 

The Crossroads Beekeepers started in August 2010 when eight people met at Joe Sippers to talk about bees and the idea of starting a club in Effingham.  From that initial meeting the club grew to 60 members by the end of its first year.

The primary purpose of the Crossroads Beekeepers is to promote, protectg and encourage the craft of beekeeping through awareness, education and networking.  Every meeting has an educational program on a beekeeping topic plus an opportunity to meet and connect with area beekeepers.

For more information on the Crossroads Beekeepers, please contact Larry Quicksall, founder, at 217-347-5937.
