2018 American Honey Queen Visits the Bee Booth at the LA County Fair

The Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association is once again honored and priviledged to host the American Beekeeping Federation's National Spokesperson, the American Honey Queen.

Kayla Fusselman, the 2018 American Honey Queen, will be at the Los Angeles County Fair Bee Booth on Wednesday, September 19th, from 9:00 - 12:30.  Kayla's very knowledgeable about honey bees and will be available to answer questions and help educate the thousands of school children who come to the bee booth to learn about bees. Welcome, Kayla!


AMERICAN BEEKEEPING FEDERATION -Press Release-

AMERICAN HONEY QUEEN PROGRAM

Kayla Fusselman, the 2018 American Honey Queen, will visit Los Angeles, California, September 18-19, as part of her National Honey Month Tour.  She will be a guest of the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Associations at the Los Angeles County Fair, speaking to fairgoers about the importance of honeybees to California agriculture and how honeybee pollination directly shapes our livelihood.  She will also share information how honey’s beautiful spectrum provides endless possibilities and the many treats that honeybees provide.  Kayla’s trip is sponsored by the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association.

Kayla is the 23-year-old daughter of Brian and Diane Fusselman of Kempton, PA.  She is a graduate of Kutztown University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in art education.  Kayla is an active alumna with the Kutztown High School FFA chapter and the Kutztown University Presidential Ambassadors.

As the 2018 American Honey Queen, Kayla serves as a national spokesperson on behalf of the American Beekeeping Federation, a trade organization representing beekeepers and honey producers throughout the United States.  The American Honey Queen and Princess speak and promote in venues nationwide, and, as such Queen Kayla will travel throughout the United States in 2018.  Prior to being selected as the American Honey Queen, Kayla served as the 2017 Pennsylvania Honey Queen.  In this role, she promoted the honey industry at fairs, festivals, and farmers’ markets, via media interviews, and in schools.

The beekeeping industry touches the lives of every individual in our country.  In fact, honeybees are responsible for nearly one-third of our entire diet, in regards to the pollination services that they provide for a large majority of fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes. This amounts to nearly $19 billion per year of direct value from honeybee pollination to United States agriculture.  

(The Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association is a proud supporter of the American Beekeeping Federation and the American Honey Queen Program.)

Today's the last day of the LA County Fair. The Bee Booth is our club's biggest event of the year. Funds raised from honey sold at the Bee Booth go to support all our educational activities throughout the year and helps send volunteer members to the Annual Convention of the  California State Beekeepers Association. Members who go to the convention are the club's scout bees; they meet with other beekeepers, researchers, and educators who are on the forefront of the changes and problems facing honey bees today. They return to our meeting and share their knowledge with us. Let's help support the LACBA and all our great educational endeavors.  Buzz by the Bee Booth - learn a lot about bees. Hope to see you at the fair!
