Congratulations to Karla Aldridge and Jacob Brasseur who successfully completed their certified beekeeper practical test!

Nancy Ruppert provided some timely information about different types of splits. We inspected three hives and were able to demonstrate making a split using a queen cell from one of the hives.

Thanks to all who came out!
