Celebrate Apple Time at Students make the grade
It’sapple time and the Colby Curtis Museum will be celebrating this year’s wonderful harvest with their annual Apple Festival, this Saturday afternoon, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
Under the canopy of trees, with live music in the air, visitors can immerse themselves in ‘everything apple’. Stevens Orchard will have a kiosk of apple products and Heath Orchard’s famous apple juice will also be available. Children and adults alike will enjoy seeing how an old-fashioned apple press works and how the fresh-pressed juice tastes. The Museum’s cook will be baking up a variety of apple goodies, both sweet and savory, including apple crumble and apple crisp, which will all be for sale. Baked

Bobbing for apples is as much fun today as it was in the ‘ole days’. beans, hot dogs, ice cream, cheese, coffee and, of course, apple pie, will also be on the menu.
“We’ll have lots of activities for children, like facepainting and bobbing for apples, races and arts and crafts,” said the Museum’s director, Chloë Southam. The
