Invitation to Madison County Beekeepers meetings

Dr. Tarpy, Valentines and Bees
Come hear Dr. David Tarpy NCSU - Extension Entomology Program
at the Madison County Beekeepers meeting on February 14, 2011.
David Tarpy - NCSU, will share current research in NC and Southeast,
update on CCD & Africanized honeybees

This chapter usually meets on the third Monday of each month but Dr. Tarpy was scheduled 2 years ago! Come to the Madison County Cooperative Extension Service Center, 258 Carolina Lane Marshall, NC 28753 (ph. 828 649-2411).

Meetings typically begin with a pot-luck dinner at 6:00 pm followed by the program at 6:30 pm. "The supper will definitely be better than fighting the V-day crowds at the restaurants and St. Valentine was also the patron saint of beekeeping! Hope to see you there" says president, Jon Christie.
