BEECHWOOD—The Beechwood Historical Society will host its first Apple Festival Saturday, Sept. 29, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Beechwood Hall, located at 178 Beechwood Store Road here.
“We have our sign back on the hall,” said a spokesperson.
Back in the early settlement and farming days, there were numerous apple trees planted in the Beechwood area.
“There will be plenty of activities for all.”
Games include apple “bingo,” Skittles and apple bobbing. The Ojibway Archers will sponsor a “William Tell” archery for kids and adults.
“We will be shooting at balloons on targets and an imitation deer. You can be a new ‘archer.’”
There will be prizes for game winners. Crafts include creating a family “apple” tree, and holiday cards.
There will also be a Best Apple Pie Contest. Pies have to be at the hall by 2 p.m. for judging.
“We will be pressing apples with fresh juice available for tasting. All these activities are free to visitors.
“There will also be a ‘sample’ recipes table of different recipes made from apples along with pies, jams and jellies for sale. Please come enjoy a fun fall afternoon. “
