Simply closing the bee lab in Columbus was apparently not enough for the Ohio State University. The University has now decided to destroy the Historic Rothenbuler Lab located on the Ohio State University property in Columbus.
Dana Stahlman from the Ohio State Beekeepers Association is organizing a " Save the Building" project. Dr Tew is checking to see if he can place the building near the bee lab in Wooster. Meanwhile, a group of volunteers are organizing to remove the building from the OSU property to a location for safe keeping until a "New" home is found.
Funding is needed for this project and some clubs have already made their pledges. The purpose of the building relocation in Wooster will be to house the OSBA Queen Project activities.
Any monies donated and not used in the moving will be earmarked for the queen project from which we all benefit. All donations should be sent to OSBA Treasurer, Bob Hooker, 100 Pyle Rd, Oberlin, OH 44074, email firstname.lastname@example.org, ask Bob to "earmark" this for the bee lab relocation.
