WCBA held their monthly meeting on Saturday, Nov. 22 at the Roane County Committee on Aging Center in Spencer. There were 42 members and 5 guests present.

The grants and cost sharing programs available to the membership were discussed. President Dale Cunningham reported the outlook for receiving the grants for wood ware, bees, and bee medication was good.

In early spring 2015, up to 35 nucs may become available to members through the cost sharing program.

A questioner from the floor asked if powdered sugar was ok to feed bees over winter. The answer was powered sugar was ok but fondue cake was better.

A motion by Larry Siers, seconded by Al Parsons, to have next year’s beekeepers class held in house next year was passed without dissent.

At 2:00 the meeting was adjourned, grace was offered by Vern Kerns and the Thanksgiving lunch was served.

After the meeting the drawing for winners of the raffle for the beehive, tote, and quilt was held. The winners were Glenn Truppi, Norma Freeland, and Lee Carper, respectively.

Also the annual auction to fund the cost sharing program was held. The money raised will go towards the purchase of the nucs.

WCBA meetings are generally held on the 4th Saturday of each month at 1:00 at the Roane County Senior Center in Spencer. Everyone is welcome.
