[+] DCBA monthly meeting
February 3, 2015 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
John Rogers, owner of Rogers Pure Honey and President of the Sauk-Columbia County Honey Producers' Association, will be sharing ideas on beekeeping from a sideliner-soon to be commercial beekeeper point of view. John builds much of his own equipment and can share his experiences on doing so. We will also see presentation on his recently expanded honey house and hear about John's involvement in the Sauk-Columbia Youth Beekeeping Partnership Program.

In addition, February's meeting will hold officer elections for 2015. We hope to see you there!
