McCLURE - The Historical Society of Grand Rapids, which sponsors the village's annual Applebutter Festival, is seeking volunteers to help prepare apple butter for this year's fest, set for Oct. 13.
The "big stir" will be held Sept. 28, from 8 a.m. to around 4 p.m., at the Kryder Farm, 4-862 County Road P, north of McClure.
The day will be filled with cooking, stirring, and canning four kettles of apple butter.
Bring a dish for the potluck lunch around noon.
Volunteers are also needed to help peel the apples. The first peeling will take place on Sept. 26, with the second peeling on Oct.10, at the Grand Rapids Fire Hall, where a hot lunch will be provided on both days. Peeling (using mechanical peelers) begins at 8 a.m. each day, and ends in the late afternoon. Volunteers should bring a paring knife for trimming and a dishpan, and may work as long as they wish.
For "big stir" information, call Steve Kryder at 419-748-8238. For peeling details, call Neil Box at 419-832-6214.
