An American tradition in Salem
Salem — Volunteers were busily at work Tuesday at the Christian Community Center to prepare for the 50th anniversary of the Congregational Church of Salem Apple Festival.
In the meeting area of the center, people were busy peeling, coring and slicing the apples. The group started making dough for crusts Sept. 21 and making pies on Sept. 23. The volunteers have used about 76 bushels of apples, creating 402 ten-inch double crust pies, 200 ten-inch crumb crust pies and 50 small cutie pies of each type of crust, in addition to turnovers, apple crisps and other baked goods.
The festival is Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Salem Green, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or until sold out.
