Happy New Year!

Hello! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. Now that it is 2011, I am officially the Indiana Honey Princess! The past month was very busy for me. During my break I went to Holy Family School in South Bend to do presentations to the grade school students. I spoke to kindergarten students, 1st graders, 2nd graders, and 4th graders, making a total of 106 students reached. The students really enjoyed the honey sticks I gave them at the end and I donated an age-appropriate book about honeybees to their library. I had a day to do presentations for the middle school kids but they had to cancel because of it being so close to their finals.  I also did an event at the University Park Mall. One afternoon I worked at a booth promoting 4-H enrollment and support of the local Pet Refuge. For a small donation we wrapped the mall-goers’ gifts. I talked to over 25 people and gave out samples of healthy honey dog biscuits, to promote the use of honey and to incorporate Pet Refuge. Before I head back to Purdue from break I have a presentation scheduled at St. Pius School. 

Keep on Buzzin’,

Alex
