The Virginia State Beekeepers meeting is Nov 8th at Blue Ridge Community College in Weyers Cave, VA.  There is still time to register at These meetings are valuable for aspiring beekeepers, novices, and master beekeepers alike!


The Colonial Beekeeper’s Association November meeting will be our annual holiday dinner at Ginny’s Restaurant in Grafton, VA, at 6 pm Tuesday, November 18th.   The restaurant is at 4724 Geo. Washington Memorial Highway (Rt 17), about 3/4th of a mile north of our regular meeting location.  Bring a bee-related gift item if you want to participate in the gift exchange, bring a door prize if possible, and please consider supporting the St. Luke’s Food Pantry by bringing Thanksgiving dinner elements (boxed stuffing, boxed mashed potatoes, canned cranberry sauce, canned turkey gravy, etc) for those less fortunate. 
Come out and join us!
