Dish and Direct do not use City property for their systems. They are satellite based..."beam me down Scotty". Only physical presence is their antenna on your building or in your yard, both private property. Don't know about the phone company. But they are required to share their lines with other carriers.

Bee class hosted by the Mississippi Valley beekeepers

1 year, 10 months ago by Denise Donley

Learn about the importance of bees for food sources and the joy of keeping bees as a hobbyist

The Mississippi Valley beekeepers are hosting a bee class February 16th from 9am to 3pm. The class will be held at the Farm Bureau lower level at 330 South 36th street in Quincy.   We’ll be sharing information about the importance of bees for food sources, and the joy of keeping bees as a hobbyist.  The class is for those who have interested in either keeping bees or seeing the benefits of bees in their lives.

Agriculturalists, retirees, hobbyist, Health conscious consumers and kids are encouraged to attend.  Companion bee hives can increase crop production by 30%.  Kids can keep bees for 4H projects, and hobbyists can use a variety of bee bi-products like Honey, Wax, and balms. 

We will also explain the types of honey and help consumers be able to understand honey grades, and be able to make more informed purchasing decisions.  Those suffering for allergies can often find local honey has the pollen they suffer from the most and can work to build a tolerance from their allergies.

Cost is $30 for an individual or $30 for the whole family, which includes class, introduction to beekeeping book and a year’s membership to the local association. 

Reservations are not required but are appreciated, to Guy Spoonmore at 217-653-9804 or visit mvbeekeepers.com for more information.
