Please Help Us Celebrate the Iowa Honey Producers Association 100th Anniversary !!! (1912-2012)
Yes it has been 100 Years that we have all tried to keep the Honeybee safe, healthy, alive and profitable. IHPA and their members have held meetings, classes, workshops and had speakers come to help us through the learning process of keeping Honeybees.
We have a request of all beekeepers. We are looking for copies of photos, stories, and recipes you would be willing to share with us. We would like to use them at the state fair, in the cookbook, and in advertisement to promote Honey and the honey booth at the Sate Fair, and field days. We would like to show the public what we do. (Then and now.) How about a farmers market photo or your local fair photo?
We Thank You in advance for your help with the chance to celebrate our 100 years organization with the public. We would like your information by August 2011 so we can pull it all together to start celebrating as soon as possible. A form will be printed in the Buzz and online for recipes. So please get looking through your papers and photos.
