“Sharing Wisdom and Support for the Betterment of Beekeeping”

In Memory of Donald F Joslin, Sr. – Hopkinton, RI – 2017  Don was the President of the Association from December 2015 through December 2016. In part under his stewardship, the Association received and managed a federal grant that still finances an ongoing research project bringing new queens, free of charge, to Rhode Island beekeepers every year. He also presided over executive board meetings and over general meetings, and was the officer in charge of virtually everything the Association did at the Washington County Fair.  He and his wife Lori logged many hours and miles helping new beekeepers with the questions and problems that plague us all. His contributions to beekeeping were significant and the Association mourns his loss. (In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Donald’s name to The Tomorrow Fund, R.I.
