The only bees flying in January in Winston-Salem are the Speas Bees (just outside of Speas Elementary School on Polo Road).The Speas family name is prominent in Forsyth County, but I have not been able to find out which member of the family the name of the school commemorates. The bee theme permeates the school website ("the buzz you hear is the sound of success").
