OUR MISSION:

 

The Montgomery County Beekeepers Association's purpose is to enrich the lives of people and honey bees in Montgomery County and surrounding areas, through the study and practice of beekeeping.

 

HISTORY:

 

The Montgomery County Beekeepers Association was established on April 25, 1975 with its first meeting at the Gulf States Auditorium.  R.C. McMullen was the first President,  Avel Murphey was the Vice - President, and Christy Bennett was the Secretary and Treasurer.

 

MORE ABOUT US:

We are made up of small scale beekeepers from all parts of Montgomery County and other nearby counties. We meet on the Third Monday of each month to expand our knowledge about honey bees and beekeeping.  As of 2019 our club is made up of 198 families with an average meeting attendance of 150.  We welcome guests to join us to determine if beekeeping is something they wish to pursue further.
