Where in Pa are you? My father in law is N of Philla. He has been Beekeeping for 30 years. Now he teaches it. Be sure to locate your local bee club.

I'm mostly up in Wellsboro, near the Tioga area way up north, but I spend some weekends down near Harrisburg.  Where would be the best way to find the local club?

Try here:
http://www.pastatebeekeepers.org/orgs.php
It has all of the registered bee clubs in PA.
Good luck

Thanks.  It says there is one for my area, but there doesn't seem to be any contact information at all.  Hopefully Google is to the rescue.  *grins*

The Lycoming County beekeepers typically have their spring meetings on the second Tuesday of March and April at the Montoursville Borough Hall at 7:00 PM
It is near the Wal Mart. When I know a date I will post it.
