We meet on the second Thursday of each month at the Shepherd's Center- 306 East Main Street, Rogersville. 


Doors open at 6pm for fellowship, with the meeting starting at 6:30. 

Pot Luck Family style Dinner

Each month during our meetings we encourage everyone to bring a dish to share, as we break bread together. If anyone cannot bring a dish, we humbly ask for a donation to cover expenses. 

Speakers

A prime highlight of each meeting is our speakers. We host experienced local speakers that bring relevant information to talk about.From equipment, pest management, extracting, new ideas and research, and more. 

Fellowship

Another huge benefit to the meetings is of course, fellowship. Come meet your neighbors, friends and fellow beekeepers. We enjoy having our children with us at the meetings, and they are always welcome to come as well. 

Library

We have dozens of books, magazines, DVDs and catalogs that are free for members to borrow each month. Each year we add to our collection from suggestions from the club and donations from several organizations.
