Monthly Meetings
Beekeeper with Bees

Come join the Oglethorpe County Bee Club, the third Monday of every month at 

7 p.m. (doors open at 6:45pm) at the Georgia Farm Bureau, 925 Athens Rd., Crawford, Ga. — just a short drive east of Athens. We hope you'll attend!



Due to the new variant of Covid making its way around this area, we will NOT have our Annual Beekeeping Picnic

on August 20th.

In conjunction with this, there will be NO MEETING scheduled for August.



 The next OCBC meeting will be on Monday, September 19th


the number of cases has declined significantly enough to make the meeting safe for all.

(when will life ever become normal again?)


NO Annual Picnic

NO bee Club meeting
