The Alabama Beekeepers Association annual picnic will be held at Lanark Pavilion, Alabama Wildlife Federation, in Milbrook, Alabama on May 5, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.    The street address is 3050 Lanark Road, Millbrook, Alabama 36054.   Click here for a map (you may have to zoom out pretty far to see detail of local roads).  

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 10:00 AM until 2:00 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.
