April 29th, 2015 — Bees were found swarming around a tree on the sidewalk of 4th Avenue near Maple Street and someone had the good sense to phone a local beekeeper who came out and provided a box for them to set up a hive. The sign on the box says, “These honey bees will be moved later today once they are all inside”.
What I’m going to say now is totally off topic but if you are in a family that likes to play charades there is actually a song called “Mary had a swarm of bees” which goes to the tune of “Mary had a little lamb”. You can google for the lyrics. It was used at one of our family gatherings over 50 years ago and provided us years of hilarity, in jokes, and on the part of the poor soul who had to act out the title, my aunt, chagrin.
