>This newbie sure would like to visit and talk with an experienced bee person close, anyone from Abbeville County, Greenwood, or Anderson?
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. email@example.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.
