  1. Hi Don,
    You might still remember me from Baton Rouge and we tlked at dinner about bees and microscopes and EAS when I was in your class on pollen and nosema.
    I wanted to ask if you would be available to teach a microscope class at the Ohio State Beekeepers Fall Conference? It’s November 3, 2018 in Plain City, Ohio. Last year we had over 600 attendees and this year I’m hoping for 700!
    Thoughts?
    Respectfully,
    Peggy Garnes,
    VP Ohio State Beekeepers
