Bee Weekend Buzzing with Activity

EUGENE, Ore. — GloryBee’s 38th annual Bee Weekend kicked off Friday, and it was buzzing with activity.

The two-day event offers live hive demonstrations, food from local companies and an array of honey to sample.

While the event is fun and flavorful, GloryBee is also doing its part by donating 1 percent of all the GloryBee honey and bee keeping annual sales to Save the Bee and Healthy Living initiatives.

“This is my sign of spring: when the bees are out, they’re starting to fly and growing up in the business. I just love this time of year, and it feels like a community. Everybody here is a part of saving the bee,” said Alan Turanski, GloryBee Foods Vice President.

The free event is open to all ages and runs Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
