Do you remember Grandpa keeping bees when you were a child?
Have you been thinking about keeping bees to help your garden? Well, the Wilson County Beekeepers Association will be offering a three-night course in beginning beekeeping. This class will be from 7 until 9 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 19 through Thursday, Jan. 21, 2010 at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center/Wilson County Fairgrounds in the Education. Tuesday and Wednesday night will be a classroom setting with valuable information and Thursday will be a hands-on program in building a complete beehive ready to use.
The cost of the three-night class will be $25 per person or $45 per couple. This cost will include a one-year membership in the WCBA, a one-year membership in the Tennessee Beekeepers Association and a copy of “Beekeeping for Dummies.”
As class size is limited, be sure to contact Petra Mitchell at 286-2529 by Jan. 16, 2010 to reserve your seat for this program, or if you have any questions.
The first meeting of 2010 for WCBA is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 4 at 7 p.m. in the West Building at the Ward Ag Center. As always, the meetings are open to the public, and you are more than welcome to attend.
Can you believe it’s almost Christmas?
The Christmas holiday came upon us fast. There are those among us who still have some shopping to do, some groceries to buy, presents to wrap and perhaps a trip to take somewhere.
Be careful these next few days as you venture out. Drive carefully as you run last minute errands or travel to Grandma’s.
Merry Christmas to all of you from the staff of The Wilson Post.
