In the spring of 2009, the Kentuckiana Beekeepers Association served as mentors and donated three beehives which produced close to 70 pounds of honey and won the 2009 KY State Fair blue ribbon for light amber honey. 
Over the winter of 2010, one queen bee and hive was lost.  Two new queen bees and 10 lbs. of honey was purchased during the spring of 2011.
