BEECHWOOD—The Beechwood Historical Society and Beechwood Friendly Neighbors are hosting the second annual Apple Festival and Flea Market on the grounds of the Beechwood Hall on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The public is welcome to participate in old fashion fun, including taking a turn at the cider press.
Juice, jellies and other baked goods (including apple pies) and recipes made with apples will be on sale. A sample table will be available for purchasing samples of recipes. Enter an apple pie in the Best Apple Pie Contest (please bring by 9 a.m. so they can be judged). Slices of the pies served with ice cream will be on sale after the contest. There will be free crafts and other activities for children.
The Ojibway Archery Club from Camp Gibbs will be back again this year with youth bows and instruction for new archers.
A flea market and crafts show will also be held this year. To rent a space to sell family finds or crafts, it is $10 for a 10-by-10 foot space. Please call 906- 284-1501 for more information.
The Beechwood Historical Society will also be selling used donated items to raise funds. The Society is incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. All donations are tax deductible.
All funds raised will go toward the continuing restoration and maintenance of the Beechwood Hall.
