There was a buzz at the Taylor County Extension Office on Thursday.

Several members of the Green River Beekeepers Association were on hand to talk about bees, the first of what is hoped to become an annual Honey Bee Awareness Day.

About 70 people attended the event, where they saw a glass-encased cross section of a hive, sampled honey granola and honey lemonade, witnessed equipment demonstrations and browsed honey and bee-related merchandise.
