Dennis Barry demonstrates hive box building at a previous workshop

A workshop on constructing wooden ware the proper way on the Saturday March 13.

BCBA members will show new beekeepers how to put together hive bodies, supers and frames. They will also show how to put foundation into the frames, using wire and the push pin alternative.

This will be a hands on demonstration, and you will be constructing actual equipment. Everything will be provided, including some refreshments.

We will begin at 9:30 and finish around lunch time.Veteran and rookie beekeepers are invited to attend.

The location is the Masonic Hall in Alcoa, 797 Vose Street. Directions to the Masonic hall: Take Hall Road to Bessemer street and turn East.
