It is with sadness, respect and regret that the Central Beekeepers Alliance notes the recent passing of Vernon Randolph Vickery, entomologist, beekeeper, and author of The Honey Bee: A Guide For Beekeepers, the “beekeeping bible” that taught many of us how to keep honeybees in a cold damp climate like that of eastern Canada.
In 2004, Vernon R. Vickery was made an Honourary Member of the Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists (CAPA), in recognition of his contributions to Apiculture.

I would like to thank all of the CBA beekeepers for volunteering their time to educate the public on the importance of supporting our local beekeepers and the importance of the honey bee! The Fredericton Exhibition is always a great platform every year to interact with the public — especially the children, as they are our future beekeepers! Every year we have a booth at the FREX and this is always a great experience for new beekeepers and old alike.
Until next year, thank you!
