In fact, donations to the Apiary Inspection Fund have reached a historic level this year!

The total collected and remitted in 2020 to AIF was $6,836 and to RRF was $1,549. Please visit to learn more about these organizations and to donate.

MSBA is also fortunate to receive donations that are based on connections between community members and friends during these distant pandemic times! Recently, Susan Waxter also made a donation of $100 to MSBA in honor of Deborah Wheeler's birthdayI
