More than a dozen members of the New Buffalo Service League gathered in the kitchen of St. Mary of the Assumption Hall in Three Oaks Thursday, Oct. 6, to make the traditional apple slices that are sold each year at their annual arts and crafts show.
The women were hard at work all day – washing, peeling and coring apples, making and rolling fresh dough and filing each pan with just the right ingredients to produce the mouthwatering treats that everyone clamors to buy.
Sawyer Garden Center provided the Service League with six half bushels of Jonagold Michigan grown apples. Nancy Gino, chair of the event, said that the Center not only provided the delicious apples but they also gave them a “wonderful price” for the fundraiser.
After assembling more than 12 pans of the delicious pastries, they were placed in freezers. They will be baked in the New Buffalo High School cafeteria, in the early morning hours before the show opens. Come early for your homemade treat – the apple slices go fast.
The arts and craft show and bake sale is Saturday, Oct. 15, from 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. at New Buffalo High School, 1112 East Clay Street in New Buffalo. The show benefits college scholarships for graduating seniors.
