The Honey Appreciation and Tasting evening was a wonderful and entertaining evening. Most of the people who attended were beekeepers like myself. I think we all came away with a greater appreciation of our own honey, as well as the many other varieties that were sampled and discussed. Jacqueline Bender gave an excellent presentation.
