Dexter, Missouri – Have you ever wondered what would happen if all the bees on the planet were to become extinct? The consequence of a dying bee population would impact many at the highest levels on the food chain. It would pose an enormous threat to human survival. There is no other single animal species that plays a significant role in producing the fruits and vegetables that we take for granted.
Cory Stevens, who is a Master Beekeeper and the Southeast Director of the Missouri State Beekeepers Association recognizes the need to educate and will be conducting monthly meetings to teach the community the benefits of raising bees and to open communication with people who would like to get involved in increasing our local bee population.
The first of a monthly series of meetings will be held Tuesday, June 2, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at Scott Laden’s farm. It is located at 9265 County Road 627 in Dexter. If you need more information or directions please call Scott at 624-4804 or 625-1327.
"There is a growing interest in beekeeping in general," stated Cory Stevens. "We have a club in Poplar Bluff and Cape and it was decided there was enough interest on a local level to justify starting a club here."
"We have some good volunteers for location and coordination as well," continued Stevens.
Dexter, Missouri - Michalie Currie, a 2nd grade student at Southwest Elementary went hunting with her dad and brother and bagged her first deer!
She is the daughter of Michael and Robin Currie. Her brother Michael Currie Jr. is too young to hunt, but he will mostly likely follow in her footsteps.
This was her third year hunting in the annual Missouri Youth Hunt, but she shot her first deer on Sunday morning!
Congratulations Michalie we are proud of you!!!
