Dear Kanawha Valley Beekeepers Association Members,
Happy New Year!
As beekeepers some of us had a good year and others not so much. But…
with a new year we can renew our dreams and goals. Last year we, as lovers of our honeybees, spread all the information we could about our bees and their exquisite qualities. This year we need to work a little harder to do presentations at schools, churches, scouts and 4-H programs. We need to reach the younger generation to educate them or at least spark their interest.
All of us are still excited, eager and ready to start a challenging new year. Let’s grow, learn and expand together.
Thank you for the privilege of working with all of you last year.

A begining beekeeping class was held at the Elkvalley Library in Elkview, WV. Sponsored by Kanawha Valley Beekeepers Assoc.. The instructors were Allen Leadman, Bill Warner, and Frank and Laura Naab. The classes turned out to be a huge success and more classes are requested, especially for this end of the county. We did a hands on class putting frames together, and hive boxes. A lot of interaction and we all had a good time. Thank you to everyone who helped and participated in the class.
