One of the highlights of an EAS conference is the Thursday night auction and this one will be no exception. It’s a social evening, with a good dinner at the Davis Center. It’s a fun time with the serious purpose of raising money for bee research. We already have an attractive range of donations, of bee-related artifacts and bee equipment. We’ll have books by noted writers such as Kim Flottum, Ross Conrad and Rowan Jacobsen. We’ll have an autographed copy of Maurice Maeterlinck’s, 1912 classic THE LIFE OF THE BEE. Richard Taylor’s famous straw hat will go on the block once again.
Distinctive this year will be works by four Vermont artists - a quilter, wood blocks and paintings with bee themes and then a painting made with bees wax. We invite you to check out these artists’ web sites and come on Thursday August 16th, with your checkbooks open.
