The Day of the Honey Bee

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

The Honorable Steven L. Point, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia signed a proclamation on November 27, 2009 declaring May 29th as “The Day of the Honey Bee”. The Proclamation recognizes the importance of the honey bee in agricultural enterprises in B.C. and its contribution since ancient times. The B.C. Honey Producers Association, encouraged local bee clubs to promote this very special Day of the Honey Bee through activities in their local areas.

The Langley Bee Club has taken this challenge and is working in partnership with Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm & Meadery. The Bee Club will be hosting a free public education day on the honey bee, at Campbell’s Gold Honey Farm on May 29th from 10AM – 2PM.  Langley Bee Club members have volunteered their time to meet with interested members of the public and provide demonstrations about beekeeping as well as talk about the challenges facing bees and beekeeping in modern times. All ages welcome and questions are encouraged at this free family event.
