We’ve had several requests to hold a special meeting outside of our monthly meeting to answer your beekeeping questions. This special meeting would have an informal setting with our experienced beekeepers answering your questions. We were able to find a program that would let us do that, the program is called Slack.  The following is the information that you would need to set up an account.

March Meeting

Just a reminder that the March meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 18, 2014. It will be held at Camp John Hope. I’ve included directions and the address below. On Highway 127 and Highway 341, there are signs directing you to Camp John Hope. Once you get inside the campground, we hope to have signs or someone directing you to the correct building. Should you have any problems getting there, please call me at 478-397-7883, and I will help you.


From I-75:
Traveling North or South on I-75 take Exit 135 (Perry-Marshallville). Travel West on GA 127/224 . At approximately two miles from I-75, GA 127/224 will split. Keep to the right on GA 127 (you’ll see the Camp John Hope sign) for approximately five miles. Turn right onto Camp John Hope Road and travel approximately one mile, turn left onto Hope Entrance Road.

Using a GPS?
Helpful Hint: Most current GPS systems readily use “Fort Valley, GA” as our destination city/state. However, some of our guests have informed us that their device required them to use “Marshallville, GA” as our destination city/state.
