Package Bees From Georgia for Spring 2016

We are local beekeepers who will be heading down to Georgia this coming spring 2016 to pick up packages of honey bees.  We wanted to ask if you will forward our information below to the members of your association. Please let us know if you have any questions. It would be great if you could copy us on the correspondence with your membership.
