Apple Harvest Festival
By Julia Lowry
Mrs. McClimon, the music teacher at Fortuna Union High School prepares for the Apple Harvest on October 1st, 2016 in Fortuna California on Main St. The music department started participating in the Apple Harvest in the middle of the 1990’s. Their booth is usually around 11th and Main where Greens pharmacy used to be.
McClimon says “We make about 300 pies and sell them. We get the apples from Clendenen's.” The pies cost $12. They feel good about the Apple Harvest.
It's a good fundraiser for the music department; the money goes to trips if they have one or to get new marching band equipment. So go and buy some apple pies from the Fortuna High music department and have a fun, safe Apple Harvest.
