August 12th Meeting

The Crossroads Beekeepers will hold its next meeting on Monday, August 12th, at 6:30pm in the basement of the University of Illinois Extension Center, 1209 N Wenthe, Effingham IL. Please enter through the west doors.

This month will be an exciting time for members and guests as our club will be holding it's 3rd annual Honey Judging and Tasting Competition.  Club members entering the competition are asked to bring liquid honey in a clear glass or plastic 1 pound bottle with no labeling of any kind.  Cut comb honey should be brought in a clear presentation container.  Dan Wright, beekeeper and State Bee Inspector, will be our judge again this year.  In addition, Crossroads Beekeepers will be having a 3rd Birthday celebration and club members are asked to bring treats to share, especially those made with honey! 
As always, the general public is invited to attend.
