Queens Visit MSBA State Fair Booth!

Queens Visit MSBA State Fair Booth

It was a royal day recently at the MSBA state fair booth. On Friday, August 8th, the booth was visited by, not one, but two queens!

Our 2014 MSBA Honey Queen, Lauren Collins, was joined by reigning Mrs. Missouri, Dr. Erin Fluegge-Woolf.

Residing in Cape Girardeau, Erin has a special interest in honey bees and beekeeping. She holds a PhD in Business Administration and is a professor of management in the Harrison College of Business at Southeast Missouri State University.

She’ll soon travel to Tuscon, Arizona to compete in the Mrs. America contest. All of us at the MSBA are cheering for you, Erin.

We look forward to more visits from Erin at future MSBA events.

A special thanks to our Honey Queen, Lauren Collins for spending the day in the booth. Lauren and our Honey Princess, Erin Mullins do a fabulous job representing the MSBA and getting the word out about our organization, beekeeping and honey bees.

MSBA Members Participate in 2014 Missouri State Fair

It’s time for the Missouri State Fair! Organizers and fair-goers once again gathered in Sedalia, Missouri, for the 2014 extravaganza. And, just like every other year, the MSBA is right in the middle of the action. The MSBA booth, located just inside the east door of the Agriculture Building, is always a hot spot of activity, with beekeeping information displays, blue-ribbon hive products and lots of friendly beekeepers answering questions from the many curious visitors.

Under the direction our State Fair Coordinator, Dean Sanders, the MSBA is well represented by MSBA club volunteers from across the state.

Come on by and visit the booth. And don’t miss out on the big draw – honey ice cream.

See you at the fair!
