2018 PSBA Summer Picnic

The PSBA summer picnic will be held Saturday, July 14 at Fisher Bee Farm, 1 Queen Bee Lane, McVeytown (same location as last year). The event will be sponsored by the Lehigh Valley Beekeepers Association who will be preparing hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and hot dogs. Please bring a side dish or dessert for the buffet line. There are some picnic tables and chairs, but please bring a lawn chair if you can. This is an alcohol friendly event, so BYOB. Nonalcoholic beverages, plating, cutlery, and napkins will be provided. The event is free.

The Executive Board will meet at 10:00 AM. All clubs are encouraged to send a representative. Lunch will be served around 12:30 PM.

Lehigh Valley Beekeepers will be bringing some equipment so you can participate in lawn games (horse shoes, corn hole, badminton, etc.) or just enjoy a relaxing day with your fellow beekeepers and watch our Honey Queen, Hannah Albright wear a beard of bees.

There will be a Queen Swap and sale, so bring your best genetics to trade or buy a queen to diversify your stock. Remember, queens reared after the summer solstice will be less likely to swarm next spring.
