Stu­dents get their Galas

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Stu­dents from Sun­ny­side Ele­men­tary and Jardin-des-Fron­tieres, along with their par­ents, were busy in the Stevens Or­chard, on Sun­day, pick­ing and grad­ing the new crop of Gala ap­ples. Mother Na­ture co­op­er­ated once again for this an­nual event, pro­vid­ing warm, sunny weather for the harvest. The fi­nal re­sult was 51 bushels, or 2040 pounds of Gala ap­ples, too small for the com­mer­cial mar­ket, which will be stored and de­liv­ered sev­eral times a month to the two schools by or­chard owner Har­vey Stevens.
