In recent years, the news has spread that our local flora, including essential food crops, is threatened by the shrinking population of pollinating bees.

What’s Your Suffield Story?

One plan for Suffield’s 350th anniversary celebration is to republish Robert Alcorn’s book, The Biography of a Town, along with a Volume 2, which would be a compilation of Suffield stories from the last 50 years that brings us from the late 1960s, when Alcorn’s book left off, through the past 50 years to 2020. Our tentative idea is to call it 50 Stories for 50 Years.
