Ron and Nancy Marks own an apple orchard of 11 Macintosh apple trees. Every year their family (Ike, Kathie, Erik, Bethany, Freddie and Joe) choose a non-profit to share the “fruits of our labor” as apples are harvested Friends, family and our church community are invited to come help pick apples, make apple juice and cut up apples for pies. People come and help and take home some juice and have the option to purchase additional juice or apples by making a donation.
This year we have chosen to support The Immanuel Lutheran Preschool. Director Julie Sager and Co-Teacher Wendy Deaton provide a quality preschool program for children (including our Freddie) ages 3-5.

- Join us on Saturday October 15 from 9:30 to noon or 1:00-3:30 pm.
- Sign up for a shift to come help pick apples, sort apples, squeeze and pasteurize the juice.
- Our apples may be having their own “sabbatical” this year as we don’t have as many apples as we have in the past so we may be limited on how long it will take! Come Early!
- Everyone who comes to help takes home a 1/2 gallon of pasteurized juice
- Make a donation for more juice or apples. (suggested price $2.50 a half gallon)
ADDRESS: 3524 South 3rd West.
