Shawn Moyer/Oxbow Apiaries and Mike Thomas/Bjorn Apiaries will again host a picnic for beekeepers.

Date: Saturday, July 26, 2008 starting around noon. Lasting all day.
Place: Bjorn Apiaries at Honeycomb Farm. 180 Century Lane, Dillsburg, 17019. This is a farm with a big silo located next to the Franklin township park/municipal building. 2 miles south of Dillsburg off route 15.

Planning on door prizes, entertainment of some sort, and plenty of good food and bee tall tales. Last year, over 110 beekeeper and guests attend.

We will have the nuc yard and honey house open. Side by side comparison of Italian, Russians, and Carniolan hives will be available. This picnic will be at a working apiary location. Anyone having ideas as to demonstrations, or can add to the day with something, please let us know. We want to have hands-on activities and some fresh ideas and suggestions on anything related to beekeeping.

Please RSVP with number attending. We are asking that each family bring a covered dish, and a favorite chair. Please bring a bee veil if you want to open a few hives while your at the picnic.

If you attended in the past, we want to challenge you to invite another beekeeper to join us. We want to make this the best picnic by having a good turnout. Everyone is invited.
