President's Message

September 2019

Hello everyone, the end of summer is fast approaching golden rod is in full bloom, asters are waiting to take the stage, with fall and frost almost in sight. This begs the question are you planning your honey bees future, if so, how is it going, if not, it is not too late. Fortunate for you LCBA is ahead of the curve and we will have two (2) tutorials for you on winter prep this month, Sept. 13th starting outside in the memorial bee yard at 6:15, where our colonies will be prepared for winter. Two differ-ent methods of prep will be used to show some flexibility in beekeeping and possible different out-comes next spring as a result. Then at 7:00 pm Tim Moore will conduct an indoor class on the same topic with even more details and information about the win-terization subject.

This year’s Lorain County Fair was another huge success with a gross sales above 19,000.00 divided between all those that sold and showed honey, more about this topic at this month’s meeting and details to follow. At this month’s meeting also, we will have a honey tasting competition from all of our Fair entries and a drawing from all entry tickets, winners will receive a free one year’s membership to LCBA, six in total.

Final preparations are being done for LCBA’S 100th Anniversary, we now have over 350 persons registered for what appears, will be a great evening of fun, entertainment and celebration. If you did not register, it is now too late to do so. There will be some great items, auctioned and raffled off, values starting at 200.00 and up to 700.00 in value, a wonderful catered dinner and lots of guests. The banquet date is Sat. Oct. 5th, kicking the evening off at 5:00 pm and dinner at 6:00 pm at the Great Lorain County Fairgrounds. For those that registered, more information can be seen at the Lorain County Beekeepers Assoc. web-site or Facebook or con-tact an executive of this Great Organization.
