LACBA 2017 Annual Holiday Banquet - A Great Time!

The Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association Annual Holiday Banquet was held December 4, 2017 at the beautiful Pickwick Gardens in Burbank, CA. Our wonderful dinner was prepared by own Doug Noland of Outback Catering.

Throughout the year, members of the LACBA volunteer our time, energy and expertise on behalf of honey bees. Whether its working the Bee Booth at the LA County Fair, providing beekeeping classes, presentations at AGDayLA and various events, educational outreach for schools and organizations, or providing information via this website and our Facebook page, it is our honor, priviledge, and responsibility to provide education to the beekeeping community and the general public about honey bees. What makes up a honey bee, where they originated, how they got to this country, how they function, communicate, gather nectar and make honey, how they pollinate our crops for our survival - Just ask a beekeeper! The funds we raise through our endeavors go to organizations on the forefront of honey bee research.

Thank you to all who worked together to make this a lovely evening of fellowship, friendship, great food, and lively conversation (bee stories, of course)!

LACBA Holiday Dinner Fun!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped with our wonderful LACBA Annual Holiday Dinner last evening at the Pickwick Gardens. Great fun was had by all.

Our delicious dinner was provided by Outback Catering (LACBA Member, Doug Noland). Potluck appetizers and desserts were brought by LACBA members.

RAFFLE!!! prizes were awesome and honey bee related.  

LABCA President, Jim Lindsey, performed the duties of Master of Ceremonies.  

LACBA Secretary, Stacey McKenna, was our gracious host and organizer of the event.

LACBA Vice President, Keith Roberts, presented the Golden Hive Tool award (our President's choice of someone who has shown great dedication to the club and thereby improved people's experience of beekeeping) to Stacy McKenna. Stacy has been the LACBA secretary for five years, volunteers at the LA County Fair Bee Booth, attends the CSBA Annual Conventions, takes copious notes of everything, shares the information with everyone, and is always willing to help beekeepers and the Los Angeles County Beekeepers Association. Congratulations, Stacy, on receiving this award. And, thank you!

A special thank you to Kodua Galieti, photojournalist, beekeeper, LACBA member for her inspiring presentation of her travels through the beekeeping world of Israel, the Land of Milk and Honey. 

"While traveling in Israel, I had the privilege to photograph bees with Haim Efrat and Yosi Slavetski of the Ministry of Agriculture. What I learned is that beekeepers face the same joys and challenges all over the world. I found that we beekeepers have a special camaraderie because we share the same passion for bees and their welfare and understand how vital they are to our existance." -Kodua Galieti
