Members and friends of the BCBA contributed dozens of items, mostly bee related but some not, to the auction, and we had a grand time in seeing them go up for bits.

Several members expressed appreciation to those who contributed and to all who made bids.

In other action last night, the membership approved a slate of officer nominees for the 2015 year. Those nominees include the following:

President: Harlen Breeden

Vice president: Bill Manuel

Secretary: John McDade

Treasurer: Bernie McGraw

Alternate officer: Jim Stovall

Board of directors: Mike Berry (one year), Travis Benson (two years), Luke Newman (three years)
