Welcome to the Tuscarawas County Beekeepers Club!


Summer is in full swing! In July, the Tuscarawas County Beekeepers Association takes it easy – there is no monthly meeting, but we will have a picnic at Deis Hill in Dover on July 9. The picnic will be held at Deis Hill Park in Dover, OH, from 12:00 pm-3:30 pm, at Shelter #4.  The association is providing hamburgers, hotdogs and buns.  Please bring a covered dish or dessert to share.  Also, we are asking folks to bring your own beverages and table service.

We will also be holding our traditional fund raising auction, so please feel free to bring an item to donate to the auction.  It can be bee-related, or not!

Directions to Deis Hill Park:  From I-77, take Dover Exit 83.  Go east 0.4 miles and make the left turn (Y intersection) at the light onto West Slingluff Avenue.  Take West Slingluff to it’s end, and turn left onto North Crater Avenue.  Once on North Crater Avenue, you’ll go about 1/2 mile, and take an angled turn onto Deis Hill Road NW/North Crater Avenue.  The Park entrance will be on the left about 0.2 to 0.3 miles up the hill (GPS Coordinates: 40.545631, -81.491913).

Our remaining meeting dates for the year are:
August 11, 2016
September 8, 2016
October 14, 2016 (Potluck Dinner)
November 10, 2016 (Annual Elections)
No December Meeting
January 14, 2017 – Annual Winter Bee Banquet

We hope you’ll BEE THERE!
