Cel­e­brate Ap­ple Time at Stu­dents make the grade

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

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

Stu­dents from Sun­ny­side Ele­men­tary and Jardin-des-Fron­tieres schools picked and graded Gala ap­ples at the Stevens Or­chard on Satur­day.

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
