Barbour Beekeepers win award

Several beekeepers from the Barbour County Beekeepers attended the West Virginia Beekeepers Spring Meeting in Fairmont on April 5, where they received the award.

The Barbour County Beekeepers April meeting will be at 7 p.m. today at the Farmers Market in Philippi. The program for the evening will be “Healthy or Unhealthy Hive: What to look for inside and outside the hive.”

Officials will also discuss what you should be doing with your bees now, and also installing new packages of bees to replace those lost this winter.

Refreshments will be served with the “Bee Buzz.” The public is welcome. If you need further information, please call Lester Lind at 304-457-1420.
