There will be no March meeting in Ithaca. Instead, join us for the Geneva Bee Conference, presented by FLBC and the Ontario-Fingerlakes Beekeepers Association. Many conference vendors will take orders and you can pick up your orders at the meeting, to save on shipping costs. This year will also feature a silent auction, and debut the Great Honey Swap!
The 2014 Geneva Bee Conference (GBC) has three great speakers lined up: Dick Rogers (Bayer), Katie Lee (Bee Informed), and Chris Harp (HoneybeeLives.org). For information on the speakers and the talks they are giving, click on the Speakers link.
The GBC will be held on the campus of Hobart and William Smith Colleges located in Geneva, New York, in the Vandervoort Room of the Scandling Campus Center. The date is Saturday, March 22th, 2014. For information on how to get to the college, click on Directions. Cost for this great event will be $30/individual or $50/couple, but if you volunteer you get a bit of a break on the cost.
For the lunch break, people bring a dish to share (or cups/napkins/plates/utensils, or bottles of water, or…) and we’ll have coffee available. We’ve always had a good variety of savory and sweet dishes that folks have brought. If you prefer, you can brown bag it or there are places near the campus where you can go to get lunch.
