2017 Summer Vendors and Sponsors

2017 Summer Vendors and Sponsors

Our Vendors and Sponsors help to bring the speakers and Conferences to SC Beekeepers.  A portion of what they pay into the Summer Conference, goes to Steve Tabor Fund – Youth Education Program.  This provides grants to SC Bee Associations that are teaching youth and providing their start into beekeeping.  This program has given $8,500 to SC Youths in two years.
