The annual auction will be the main event for the October meeting of the Blount County Beekeepers Association.
The meeting, which will be on Monday, October 13, at 6:30 p.m. in the Blount County Library.
The money from the auction goes to support the grants the BCBA gives to those who want to begin beekeeping or who have good ideas for promoting beekeeping in this area of East Tennessee.
In years past members have been generous in donating items for the auction, and we are looking forward to the same for this year. Items do not necessarily have to be bee-related, but they should be new or in very good shape. We are also likely to have items donated from a number of bee suppliers.
So, bring what you have, and then get ready to bid on what you want. It’s always a fun time for everyone.
If you have questions about what your bees are doing this time of year, the next BCBA meeting would be a great place to get some answers.
As always, our meetings are free and open to the public. Invite a friend to come along with you. Even if the friend isn’t interested in becoming a beekeeper, we always have lively, friendly discussions about what we should be doing with our bees.
