People are needed to help at both the Honey Booth, located in the Food Court, and the Honey Stand, located in the Marketplace. If you could give a half-day or more it would be appreciated.
The Honey Booth offers waffles and honey ice cream along with bottled honey. The Honey Stand offers bottled honey and bee products that are donated by you, the PA beekeeper.

The money from the sales goes back to the Pa. Beekeepers Promotional Fund and is used for the Pa. Honey Queen program and the promotion of honey throughout the state.
Sign up to share your knowledge of the honey bee with the public at the Farm Show "Learning Center". We are now front and center in the large exhibit hall. People are excited and eager to learn about the trials and tribulations of this efficient pollinator and you can be a part of this by simply volunteering a few hours of your time. Contact Sharon McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
Sign up sheets for the Honey Booth, Honey Stand & Large Exhibit Hall will be located on the registration desk at the annual meeting.
