Fly Creek, NY— New York’s peak apple harvest time has begun and the Cooperstown Rotary Club is celebrating by sponsoring the annual AppleFest at the Fly Creek Cider Mill & Orchard September 20 and 21. This long-standing, well-attended festival is a fall family fun event that includes plenty of apple and cider sampling, a large display of antique tractors, a variety of children’s games, a dunking booth, inflatables, and live musical entertainment. The event is the Club’s annual effort to raise thousands of dollars to benefit local charities and Rotary supported programs. Last year Rotary raised over $10,000 through business and individual sponsorships and contributions with 100% of the revenues returning to the local community. There will be a daily build-your-own scarecrow contest with Fall decorations available at a nominal fee.

“This great family event is a terrific attraction for community residents and visitors as it benefits local charities with financial support to provide wonderful community programs,” said Cooperstown Rotary President Paul Kuhn. “There will be plenty of family fun, with games for the children, raffles, an great live music,” Kuhn added.

Bill Michaels, owner of the Fly Creek Cider Mill, says, “We are pleased to have the Cooperstown Rotary Club and the community be the beneficiaries of AppleFest. Being able to support the club as an event sponsor is our opportunity to thank our many customers who have chosen to make the Mill a traditional fall family destination.”

The event will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Saturday and noon until 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is a donation of $2, with children under 12 admitted free. Parking is free. On Sunday September 23, 2007, there will be a Tractor parade beginning at 8:30 a.m. the Fly Creek Cider Mill going to the Fly Creek General Store.
