2017 Alabama Beekeepers Association annual picnic
The Picnic was a big success, sorry if you missed it.    Start making plans to attend next year (2018).    Details later!
     

The Alabama Beekeepers Association annual picnic was held at Lanark Pavilion at the Alabama Wildlife Federation in Milbrook, Alabama on April 29, 2017.    The street address is 3050 Lanark Road, Millbrook, Alabama 36054.   

The Alabama Beekeepers Association will be providing the drinks, paper products and meat.   Hal Hendrix is cooking BBQ.   The Central Alabama Beekeepers Association will be picking up the drinks for us.   Everyone else is asked to bring a side dish to go with this.  

The association has rented tables and chairs for everyone to use this year however you are still welcomed to bring your favorite lawn chair if you prefer.     The Wildlife Federation has a Nature Complex there and also some walking trails that will be available to us.    We have the pavilion from 10AM until 2 PM that day.  

Right now we are expecting Rossman Apiaries and Kelley Beekeeping to be bringing orders to the picnic.   They will not have booths set up to sell there.    If you need anything from them, order it in advance and they will bring it to you.    This is a great opportunity to save on shipping.
