The Hampshire Beekeepers display at the Hampshire County Fair took the blue ribbon. I think I counted 9 other farm/business displays that HCBA was in competition with for the blue ribbon. The observation hive was a tremendous success. That's the reason for the blue ribbon in my opinion. It created a dynamic display instead of just a static display. We went to the fairgrounds at about 4 Pm on Saturday to pick up the display. Even as I was carrying the observation hive to the truck people were flagging me down to talk about it. It was a great experience and I think it provided a lot of exposure for HCBA.

We completed the HCBA display at the Hampshire County Fairgrounds today. Also pictured with Ruth is Paul Roomsburg, the horticulture teacher at Hampshire High School and the main coordinator for the agricultural displays at the fair. Paul is partially blocking the observation hive which we delivered and set in place today.
