It’s that time of year again! The time we look so forward to, and at the same time sort of dread (the sticky clean up). Honey Extracting!

Our annual honey extracting workshop is at 7:00 PM on Monday, June 16.  It will be held in the East/West building at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center (Wilson County Fairgrounds) in Lebanon. This is also where we normally meet.  There will be no business meeting conducted.

Hope to see you there!
