Oh Hon, No. Say It Ain’t So!

On June 10th, the day before Honfest here in Hampden, Margaret Vinci Heldt died at age 98.

Who is Margaret Vinci Heldt, you ask? Oh, hon. That’s just the fabulous lady who invented the beehive! There’s a nice write-up about her on the New York Times website.

Here is a wonderful, short video about how she created the beehive.

All of those Hon’s out there need to raise a glass in memory of the fantastic Ms Vinci Heldt.
