Here are some highlights from this years Oktoberfest event. The weather started out rather cool but it didn’t seem to affect the numbers of people who attended. I believe this was one of the most profitable years the club had. Thanks to all who came out, volunteered, and supported the club.

Octoberfest 2009

This years Octoberfest celebration proved to be as good as any in the past. Although the day started a bit dreary, it wasn’t long before the sun broke through and people began to fill the street. Tom, Gary, and Wyane with his wife, were first to arrive and set up the booth. Ironically we were positioned right in front of the Queen Bee restaurant. Not quite sure if that was intentional or not. Later several other members showed up including Randy, Mike, Brian, Bill, the McMahons, Steve S. and his wife and Earl and his wife.  Of course the Wisconsin Honey Queen also came for a good portion of the day and helped promote the industry. There was plenty of honey available and with the observation hive Randy filled, there was a steady stream of onlookers and buyers. I’m not certain of the total number of pounds sold, but I think it was pretty good. Enjoy the pictures of the day below courtesy of Gary McMahon.

2009 Botanical Gardens Review

On June 5th, 6th, and 7th, the club represented what we do with honey, book and wax products at the Botanical Gardens. Although the weather wasn’t to bad on Friday, Saturday and Sunday turned a little cool. Sales though we’re pretty good. A lot of people stopped in to purchase honey products, talk bees or view the observation hive we had on Saturday. Amy Roden, the current Wisconsin Honey Queen, also made an appearance on Saturday. It was nice to have her there representing the state regarding bees. Here are some pictures highlighting one of the days.

Octoberfest 2008

Here is the pictures of the day on September 27th, 2008 at the Appleton Octoberfest celebration. The day started out at 6:30am with setup by Tom, Hank, Gary, and Wayne and his wife. People started flowing down the street by 8:30. Earl and Lee showed up with the Honey Queen as well. It was nice to have her there. Jim and Steve also stopped by for awhile. The rest of the day resulted in good awareness to our booth. The new banner helped to bring people over to the tables too. Honey sales were very good according to Tom and Wayne based on other years sales. Business varied from hectic to moderate but basically very good. We were packed up and on the road by 7pm.  As soon as I get a dollar amount of honey sold, I will post it. Enjoy some pictures below from the event.

Here is the initial setup

Be sure to get involved in our next honey sales event. It was nice talking to people about bees and mingling with the people. It’s a great chance to educate the public.
