Bees have been regular visitors to the sunflowers in the planters on Main Street and in the sunflower garden next to the Historical Society Building.

It’s nice to know Carnegie is helping the bees that have been having a hard time surviving lately.  Despite the occasional sting, they are vital to pollinating the fruits and vegetables we enjoy each summer.
