MOUNT VERNON — Dana Stahlman, president of Central Ohio Beekeepers Association, will be the featured speaker at the Kokosing Valley Beekeepers Association’s spring meeting on Tuesday, April 19, at 7 p.m.
Stahlman is volunteering his time and labor to raise queen bees to sell to Ohio beekeepers. Proceeds will go to the OSU bee lab in Wooster, and are earmarked toward Sherry Ferrell’s salary as her position at OSU has been discontinued. Stahlman will share details on the project and how others can be involved as well. Stahlman will also answer questions on seasonal management of bees.
The meeting will be in the Ag Building at 1025 Harcourt Road in Mount Vernon. There will be refreshments, raffle and door prizes. For more information e-mail the club’s secretary, Sharon Tuggle, at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the club’s page on Facebook.
