Everyone knows the Apple Festival is a fun community event, but did you know when you purchase apple cider from the old-fashioned Apple Cider Wagon located in the Funland area you are helping others?
Throughout the Apple Festival, the Apple Cider Wagon is hosted by different organizations from Jackson County. These host groups then receive the profits from the cider.
This year’s hosts include a variety of groups such as the Jackson County Extension Happy Homemakers, the Somerset Clovers 4-H Club, the Murphysboro Red Devil Football Team, and S.T.A.R.T.
So, do yourself and our community a favor! Stop by the Apple Cider Wagon, say hello to our volunteer hosts, and help them help others by enjoying some cold apple cider!
