“Bee Man” Visits Sunbury Christian Academy

The elementary students of Sunbury Christian Academy recently enjoyed an hour-long program in the school’s gym about honey bees. Mr. Bob Geary, of Danville, explained the importance of the honey bee, emphasizing the importance of pollination. Displaying his smoker, veil, and gloves, Mr. Geary told the students how we depend so greatly upon the honey bee for the development of the fruits and vegetables that we enjoy. The students were given the opportunity to take an up-close view of a bee hive that contained approximately 2,500 honey bees. Mr. Geary is currently keeping about 40,000 bees.
