The event has served as a fundraiser for the Central Baldwin Education Foundation which was organized in 2008. The purpose of the CBEF is to encourage academic excellence in the Central Baldwin area schools by providing funding which is not available through traditional local, state or federal sources.
The foundation provides opportunities for teachers and staff to develop innovative projects through grants; to invest in programs and enrichment activities that have a positive impact on student success; to encourage a continued interest in and support of public education through a network of businesses, individual and community involvement; and to seek and cultivate funding sources for educational excellence.
The Honey Bee Festival is Saturday, Nov. 5 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Honey Bee Park is located at 22780 State Highway 59, Robertsdale.
