This has been a very busy time for me. In fact as you read this I could be in any one of the following states: West Virginia, Ohio, Washington, Indiana, or Kansas. And I am very much looking forward to telling ya’ll about the events in these states. Now for what I have been up to since my last article.
The first week of June found me at the Texas Beekeepers Association Summer Clinic. This was a great event with over 120 people attending. It was good to see so many of you. The various workshops were also a huge hit. Some of the presenters included, John Talbert, Jimmy Oakley, Blake Shook, Ray Latner, and our host Randy Johnson of Johnson Honey & Bee Co.
The middle of June found me doing a radio interview on Heath and Honey with John Talbert at a local radio station in Allen, TX, and aired in July. This was a wonderful promotion and the DJ was so fascinated by the topic, she scheduled another interview for the fall.
Perhaps my most memorable event yet: on June 24th I did a school event with 3’s, 4’s, and 5 year olds in a summer class for the gifted and talented in Royse City, TX. This was an unusual and interesting bee talk as all the children were already very knowledgeable about the honeybee and brought up the fact that they already knew what a proboscis was before I could even sit down.
