Ever wondered how honey bees actually make honey from nectar?  Or about its composition or protective systems?  These topics and more will be covered in the presentation on “How Bees Make Honey” by Virginia Tech entomology emeritus professor Dr. Richard Fell.  

The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday September 10th at the Montgomery County Health and Human Services Building, 210 Pepper St.,

We will also have a tasting of members’ honey so bring a jar or two to share! Dr. Fell will also bring a couple of unusual honeys to include in the tasting.jar

The equipment raffle will be held and we will be discussing what we should be doing to help the bees prepare for winter.

Please consider bringing a drink or snack to share.
