Welcome to the home page of the Tri-State Beekeepers Association. We are a group of hobbyists in Ohio, Marshall, and Belmont counties who are dedicated to promoting beekeeping. We meet monthly and host local and state speakers in an attempt to educate beginners and foster camaraderie among more seasoned members. The meetings are always casual and supportive, drawing on the knowledge of veteran members in an exchange of techniques and know-how. We foster novice beekeepers through a mentor program, pairing an experienced member with a newbee.

Here we are checking out the bees.
We support a speakers bureau with individuals enthusiastic about presenting programs on bees and beekeeping for private and civic groups. The Tri-State Beekeepers Association welcomes all interested individuals to contact us for an informative and memorable experience.

AUGUST 20, 2015

The annual picnic of the TriState Beekeepers Association will be held at the Bethlehem Community Park on Thursday, August 20 at 6:00 pm.  The picnic will be held at the John Daniel Shelter.  The shelter is very spacious with a full kitchen including refrigeration and attached restrooms. 

The picnic always offers a chance to sit and visit will all club members and the conversation swings through a multitude of topics, but always seems to come back to the bees.  The company is most friendly and enjoyable.

The club will provide chicken, and we ask that you bring a covered dish and refreshments of your choice.  If you want something other than chicken, there will be grill pits available to you.  To insure that we have enough chicken, please call Kathie Roth at (304) 242-9867 or e-mail to sroth29201@comcast.net for reservations.  Please make plans to attend and enjoy an evening of conversation and camaraderie.
