    I sure hope all of you beesource beekeepers from NY will at least look at the Newsletter linked to in the previous Post. ESHPA's President and Newsletter Editor put a lot of work into producing the newsletter and I think it shows.

    And I really hope you will be inspired to attend the meeting. We have what I think is a pretty good list of speakers on a number of topics.

    We will also have Bee Supply Companies represented at the meeting in our Trade Show Room(s). So, make arraingments to pick up your orders in Syracuse and enjoy formal talks and hallway talks w/ bee friends. Socializing is one of the main reasons I like to attend eshpa's Fall Mtng.

    Hope to c u there.

    And don't miss the Friday evening Banquet. There is always something interesting to bid on at the silent auction. I'm bringing an Ultrabreeze suit which need new zippers.

    Well it was. And could be again for someone. A cpl years ago one beekeeper brought a smoker which had been run over by his trailer. It's a FUNd raiser after all. We like to have fun w/ it. There are always plenty of new items, useful items, donated my members and vendors.
