Glance at the Past - Apple Smorgasbord

This dispatch was added by one of our Nonprofit Neighbors. It does not represent the editorial voice of The Rapidian or Community Media Center.

The first Apple Smorgasbord was held in 1951 to build community among its members.
Underwriting support from:

West of the Grand River was home of the Peach Ridge Growers Association formed in 1928.  Farmers found the peachy soil to be just right for growing apples.  The first apple smorgasbord was held in 1951 to build community through a growers picnic where attendees could enjoy apple fritters and apple butter.

The Rapidian, a program of the 501(c)3 nonprofit Community Media Center, relies on the community’s support to help cover the cost of training reporters and publishing content.

We need your help.
