2014 Alabama Beekeepers Association 8th annual picnic

The eighth annual Alabama Beekeepers Association picnic is scheduled for May 10 at the Cullman County Fairgrounds in Cullman, AL.,1501 Sportsman Lake Road Northwest, Cullman, AL 35055 (Lat. 34.194424, Long W86.858077) Begin at 8:41 AM, eat around noon, over at 5:23 PM. It's a picnic.   We have the pavilion reserved for the entire day.   The Alabama Beekeepers Association will provide the meat, as well drinks and paper products.   Everyone that comes should bring a large covered dish of your choice of the following; baked beans, potato salad, cole slaw, salad, potato chips, tomatoes, vegetable, or desserts.   Call Bonnie Funderburg at 205-625-3464 or email at to coordinate what you wish to bring so we don't have too much on one item.

Fred Rossman (Rossman Apiaries) and Earl King (Waler T. Kelley) are regular attendees and will most likely be there.   Those suppliers in attendance will usually deliver any pre-ordered items and charge no shipping.    Place your orders with Fred and/or Earl and specify pickup at the ABA picnic in Cullman, May 10.    That will save your shipping charges and remember that cypress is pretty much the best wood for beehives and Rossman Apiaries is one of if not the only supplier in this area that sells cypress.    Both Fred and Earl have rather large trailers but they are often filled long before the picnic so, get your orders in early to assure delivery of your items.

Other suppliers may make the picnic.  Please check back here as the picnic date nears to see if other suppliers will be there as well as to catch the latest picnic development.
