Retired coach, professor to talk about beekeeping

SUNY Oswego coaching legend Jim Howard and emeritus anthropology professor Jim LeFlore will talk about beekeeping as a retirement avocation May 25 as part of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program’s Lunch ‘n’ Learn Series.

Lunch ‘n’ Learn will run 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the McCrobie Building, 41 Lake St. in Oswego. An optional lunch will follow the presentation.

Howard and LeFlore will present “All About Bees,” and will demonstrate with a glass-enclosed hive, complete with workers and drones. His queen bees are too busy to attend this time of year, the former wrestling coach said.

Howard, emeritus associate professor of health and physical education, coached at SUNY Oswego for 26 years, and was Division III Coach of the Year in 1982. LeFlore taught anthropology at the college from 1972 to 2005.

To make a reservation, call RSVP at 312-2317 by May 24.

RSVP, headquartered at SUNY Oswego, is a federal initiative of the Corporation for National and Community Service. The college and United Way sponsor it locally.
