Mis­sion Ac­com­plished –

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vis­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Last­week­end, vol­un­teers from the three Stanstead Schools fin­ished grad­ing the 2080 pounds of Royal Gala ap­ples that will be de­liv­ered to the two ele­men­tary schools over the next five months, be­gin­ning to­day. The project was the brain­child of Stevens Or­chard owner Har­vey Stevens and he was happy that the vol­un­teer pick­ers and sorters, many of whom came from Stanstead Col­lege’s Com­mu­nity Ser­vice pro­gram, were able to sur­pass the project’s goal of 2000 pounds.

“It was a great com­mu­nity project that all three schools, the stu­dents, par­ents and even grand­par­ents, can be proud of. The stu­dents will get free ap­ples and they helped us pick our ap­ples. Ev­ery­one was a win­ner,” com­mented Mr. Stevens. “We’re look­ing at mak­ing this com­mu­nity ap­ple pick­ing a tra­di­tion ev­ery year,” he added.
