Events and special programs

Regular monthly meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday during the months of February, March, April, May, June, and August. Guest speakers appear at each regular meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. with a Pot Luck Dinner and fellowship time. Most meetings are held at the United Community Bank in Burnsville, intersection of U.S. 19E and Highway 197.  All meetings are open to the public and you do not need to be a member of the club to attend.

There are no meetings during November, December and January.

The club hosts a special booth during the Mount Mitchell Craft Fair in downtown Burnsville in August at which the public can learn about honey bees and their importance, and purchase honey and other bee-related items donated by members to benefit the club and its programs.
