WBA Makes History in December, 2016
WBA made history by entering a float in not one, but THREE area Holiday parades. As far as we know, we're the FIRST Beekeeping Association in South Carolina to sponsor a float in a local parade, and we're even more confident that we're the first to appear in THREE parades! We've decided that it's a GREAT way to promote beekeeping to the general public. In fact, we're already working on plans for NEXT YEAR! We're also hoping that this will start a trend among the other local Beekeeping Associations across South Carolina.
We learned a LOT from our first experience. Take it from us, if you'd like to sponsor a float in a local parade next year, the best time to start planning is NOW. We didn't decide to do this until late in the year, and without the dedication and hard work of a very small group of members, we could never have pulled it off. Fortunately, one of our members had previous experience with designing and building parade floats, so she and her husband spearheaded the project and made it happen! (Photos by Herman Newman)
