Beginning Beekeeping Class

The River Valley Beekeepers Association is happy announce that we will once again conduct a beginner beekeeping class. Covid permitting, the classes will be held on February 15th and 22nd. Please check here or our Facebook page often to keep updated on the status of the class.

Covid continues and so do we …

As we enter our third year of the Covid epidemic we are still going about the business of beekeeping. We continue to conduct our monthly meetings the first Monday of each month at the Russellville Western Sizzlin. We continue to watch what’s going on in that front and will adjust the best we can.

We have elected new club officers.

Ron Schwartz is the 2022 club President. Ron is retired from Arkansas Nuclear One and has been keeping bees since about 2013.

Jerry Hankins has agreed to serve as Vice President. Jerry is retired from the Corps of Engineers. In addition to keeping bees, he loves woodworking.

Glen Holmes continues to serve as Treasurer. No change there.

The Secretary position is filled by two fine ladies, Julie Moore and Debbie Young.
