Last Meeting at ATC, Guest speaker Jack Bishop

Tonight, our last night at American Tobacco. Our own Jack Bishop, PhD, will be the speaker.  Jack is retired from NIEHS, Reproductive and Developmental Genetic Toxicology Branch. He has kept bees for personal joy, as well as for research.  He will bring his unique experience to speak tonight about genetics, and in particular drones.

The meeting will be Tuesday, February 17th, 6:30pm, at the Mission Post (American Tobacco Campus).
We would like to thank our host American Tobacco Campus for offering us a meeting place since January. Their support is appreciated and helped us host our first 10 week beekeeping school. Visit their website and campus to see all of the amazing things they offer and support. http://www.americantobaccohistoricdistrict.com/

Meeting February 17, 2015 (Canceled due to inclement weather)

Due to the accumulation of snow and ice we have canceled tonight’s meeting.
This months guest speaker is North Carolina Apiary Inspector, Nancy Ruppert!  She will be talking about Bee Nutrition.  For those of you that are taking bee school, we had hoped to have Nancy as an instructor, but were unable to due to scheduling conflicts.  That said, this is a great opportunity to hear a very informative talk!  The meeting will be Tuesday, February 17th, 6:30pm, at the Mission Post (American Tobacco Campus).

Here are the details for how to get to Mission Point:

Mission Post is directly east of the Lucky Strike smoke stack, right next to Stack Alley and Cuban Revolution, just behind the Power Plant building, (between the Lucky Strike Tower and Lucky Strike Smoke Stack).
