Jennifer Berry to Speak to New Jersey Beekeepers Association

We spoke with Jennifer Berry from the University of Georgia today so we could  finalize   arrangements for picking her up at the Philadelphia Airport next week. She will speak on at the New Jersey Beekeepers Association Winter Meeting on Saturday February 12, 2011.  Mary had met Jennifer at the 2009 EAS Conference in upstate New York and when she came back from the meeting told me that Jennifer would be a great speaker for a future  NJBA meeting. On Sunday Jennifer will head up to Storrs, CT to speak at the Eastern Connecticut Beekeeping Association.
