Northeastern Kansas Beekeepers
The name " Bee FunDay" came about in the early 1990's from hosting these small early summer bee events at a local farm. Members of the association got together for the event to have fun, and expand their learning from just a monthly meeting. The even has gown in numbers over the years. It has always been a way for members to bond in addition to learning other things about beekeeping that might not be covered in a monthly educational meeting. In 2015, we had over 300 in attendance. Join us at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.
This very 1st Funday event was held on a Sunday, June 5th, 1994, at the grounds of the Agricultural Hall of Fame in Bonner Spring, KS. The next was held at the home of Joli Winer and Cecil Sweeney. The association held it's annual Watermelon Feed and Honey Judging Contest in the month of September. We've been holding this event every years since the beginning.
