March is auction month for the Blount County Beekeepers Association.
As we do each year, we will be auctioning a wide variety of items at our monthly meeting on Monday, March 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the Blount County Library.
Money raised from the auction will go to next year’s BCBA/Charlie Stewart scholarship awards. Last year, we raised about $1,400, which enables us to give five substantial grants to beekeepers in our area who need assistances in getting started or in a special project they would like to undertake.
All of the items in the auction are donated, and most come from BCBA members themselves.
They inlcude many beekeeping items as well as crafts and other items.
Members are urged to bring items to the meeting for auction. They are also reminded that their gifts to the association are tax deductible.
