Hello from Derby, Connecticut
« on: January 03, 2005, 09:10:05 pm »
Hello Everyone,

My name is Will Banks and I am from Derby, Connecticut. I have 2 hives (adding 2 more this year  :D ) and I have been a beekeeper for 2 very rewarding years. My Grandfather was a beekeeper and as a small child I remember being fasinated by the little critters and nothing compares to the taste of your own local honey.
Sadly my Popup passed some years ago and as a way to remember him I started beekeeping. My whole family gets involved, even my 6 year old daughter, she just loves to spin frames for the honey! i was a member of The Back Yard Beekpers but time and distance just didn't permit me to attend the meetings.
Looking forward to assisting anyone with questions and asking a few myself!

Hi Will:

Glad you found the forums and I hope we see you often. I started the forum just over 10 months ago and I've learned a lot myself from this very active membership.

Hope you get to share tales about yourself and family and your bees, we all like personal interaction here, which makes the Forums a close knit bunch and practically every day we add new members with all levels of experience - I hope you find your way back often and thanks for joining.
