The Botetourt Bee is an online publication and website focusing on news in Botetourt County, Virginia.

Reporting in the area for the last fifteen years, Cathy Benson decided to continue focusing on the news and events of Botetourt when her former employer shuttered the section focusing on this county to many people's dismay. Such is the nature these days of news and bees... vital, but on the decline.

The freedom of running her own publication, though, means she gets to choose the stories she wants to write about: news that keeps you aware of what's happening locally, stories that bring us together, articles that uplift our successes and the progress of our county. In these times, we need to understand our neighbors more than ever and know that we're all connected and part of a community.

This patreon will help The Botetourt Bee pay for the expenses of gas, hosting a website, paying contributing writers and her own time put into writing. The better we do here, the more stories and engagement we can offer our community. We're happy to be a part of your lives and hope we make your days more informed and hopefully a little brighter, too.
