LCBA at 2016 Somerset Community College Earth Day celebrations

LCBA hosted an exhibit at the Somerset Community College Earth Day celebrations on Sunday, April 17, 2016. It was a perfect day, with blue skies and sunshine, and the LCBA tables were set up in the College grounds under a shady canopy. The LCBA observation hive was the hit of the day, attracting plenty of visitors of all ages, and raising lots of interest about bees and beekeeping.
