Calling all SOUTH CAROLINA beekeepers!
« on: April 19, 2005, 11:21:05 PM »
Hi guys!  I am in Saluda County and noticed we have FIVE folks here from my state!  That's enough for a serious discussion about south carolina specific issues (if there are any).

So sound off!  Where are you guys?

Just joined, in Abbeville County, and seeking an experienced beekeeper in my neighborhood, as I am a newbie.
I am my own biggest critic!

Been away form the computer for a few days. I am over here in Lowrys, just in the middle of York, Chester, and Union. Good to see more SC beeks here.
With the help of the Lord I hope to be a good and faithful Shepard to all that He allows me to attend.

Lakeland Beekeepers association mets in Greenwood, usually @ the Tennis complex building @ the Civic Center on Reynolds Ave. Sorry I can't remember the night (I belong to two clubs and swing shifts, usually can't remember what day of the week it is  :-D) but they meet once a month. Contact Clemson Extension agency in McCormick (Wallace Woods) and they can give you the info. Also the President of Lakeland Beekeepers is Donna Boozer from Greenwood. donnaboozer@embarqmail.com

They are a growing club with a beginner course, I think running now.

Dug up an old news letter. I believe they meet second Tuesday of the month.
