Virginia Condello (left) and Melony Bell are the founders and partners of the Queen Bee Box Company. The boxes are provided by Bell, whose husband, Robby, is a beekeeper. When the boxes are no longer used to house bees and collect honey, they are turned over to Condello who decoratively paints them.

Expectations are high regarding Saturday, April 19 and this year’s Spring Azalea Family Fun Festival. Inspired by Bartow’s slogan, “City of Oaks and Azaleas,” the Spring Azalea Family Fun Festival, now in its second year, is a quality of life event project of the Greater Bartow Chamber of Commerce, presented by Spath Jewelers.

Set for the day before Easter, Saturday, April 19, the day kicks off with the annual Kiwanis Club Easter Egg Hunt at 10 a.m. at Mosaic Park. (If planning on bringing children for the hunt, make sure to be there on time.) Afterward, the Easter Bunny will visit with kids and pose for photos.
