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)

March meeting to feature annual auction


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.
