From September 15* till 20*, the South French town Montpellier is the place for the 41th International Beekeeping Congress, Apimondia. In the past a lot of countries issued during this Congress, a special set of stamps or a postmark/cancellation about bees and beekeeping.
It is a pity, so not in France this tinie, but our French colleague, Geraldine Forestier, has done together with a friend, who is the President of the Beekeeping Association in Paris, some research. She was informed, that there will be an issue of a "timbramoi stamp", a kind of personal stamp.
We will wait and keep you informed about new postal items of the 41 th APIMONDIA.
