Jim Cleary Wins the 2022 Penquis Beekeepers Annual Honey Tasting Contest
Congratulations to long-time member Jim Cleary for having "the best tasting honey" for 2022. It was a close competition among 11 samples of honey submitted by members. The competition came down to a draw between a sample from Jim Cleary and that of another long-time member, Owen Blackden, that was decided by random drawing.
Congratulations to our 2022 MEMBERS OF THE YEAR
We held our first annual "Members of the Year" award, with nominations and voting carried out through online surveys.
Eugene Smith won "New Member of the Year" for his enthusiasm, involvement, and contributions to lively meeting discussions.
Jim Cleary was selected as the "Beekeeping Mentor of the Year" for being available to so many members with help, assistance and advice in their beekeeping endeavors.
At our annual meeting and potluck dinner, the winners were presented with "official" certificates to commemorate their win, and each received a $25 gift certificate to the beekeeping supply vendor of their choice.
