In the News - brush fire, Howard Crawford

Second brush fire on same Franklin street deemed suspicious

Persistence pays off for Franklin beekeeper

Today, Crawford continues to teach and mentor new beekeepers at the Norfolk County Beekeepers Association, and says he loves the bees almost as much as he loves their keepers.
"I've never met a beekeeper I never liked. Anyone that keeps bees are nice people," he said. "I think you've got to have a certain character to be a beekeeper."
A week from his 87th birthday, Crawford currently keeps 12 hives - and hopes to keep them for a long time coming.

Franklin, MA
