Pennsylvania —Enjoy autumn at
Pottsgrove Manor with “An Apple a Day, the Colonial Way� on Saturday, October
22nd from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Pottsgrove Manor’s staff and

working the cider press. Watch the colonial cooks as they make apple butter and
other historic apple recipes. Young visitors can make themed crafts to take
home.

At 1:00 pm, master gardener
Jane Irvin-Klotz will present a talk called “Apples: They Built America,� which
will explore the importance of apples to early Americans, including the man we
know as Johnny Appleseed.

and cookies will also be available for purchase.
