Last night the Cumberland County Chapter of MSBA honored Jacky Hildreth as he completed his 7th year as president of the chapter. During his tenure, the chapter grew from 35 members to over 230 today. Jacky has been a generous and tireless leader. He teaches beekeeping courses and is a mentor to many beekeepers. He became a Master Beekeeper last year. The chapter recognized his rich contribution to bees and beekeepers in Cumberland County with a few presents and this amazing cake baked and presented by Laurie Hewitt.
Jacky will go on to serve on the statewide MSBA Board. Peter Richardson is the new president of the Cumberland County Chapter.
