On Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at the monthly Village Board meeting, Mayor Boomer Neece congratulated Scott and Cathy Carter from Blue Sage Apiaries on winning 1st place with their White Honey. Scott and Cathy traveled to Schaumburg, Il. for the National American Bee Federation to compete with 119 other entries and came home with a 1st place win in the White Honey category. Cathy gave an informative and very interesting speech about the different types of honey and the process of making the perfect batch. Cathy also encouraged everyone to plant flowers to attract bees for pollination. Once again, Congratulations Blue Sage Apiaries.
