Our 2012 Harvest Dinner was fabulous!! We had approximately 45 people in attendance with special guest Lynda Rizzardi (TBA President ), her husband Ned, Cayci Leamon (McMinn County Extention Agent 4-H) and her daughter Eva. Linda spoke about opportunities with TBA and the conference. Cayci shared with us her responsibilities with 4-H and how we may become involved. Art Howard had the blessing and then a feast we did have. A movie was shown after dinner on our CBA 2012 activities. The movie was available for purchase which raised over $50 dollars for the association. We are also starting to work on a cookbook with Ocoee and Monroe Beekeepers Associations. A request for honey recipes was make with the hopes of having the Honey Cookbook ready by next fair season.
Officiers for 2013 were elected. Jim Gentry, President, Mike Coulter, Vice-President, and Jan Stephenson, Secretary/Treasure. The nominating committee presented out going President, John Hartmann, and out going Secretary/Treasure, Amy Adams with a gift of a honey spoon. Door prizes were given through out the night with the help of Trinity Adams.
