Pressing for a Cure

A co-worker of mine will be making cider the old-fashion way using a cider press at Hollis Old Home Day this Saturday, September 19, 2009 starting at 10 AM. It is great fun for the kids to be able to throw the apples down the chute and then see them ground up, pressed, and out comes fresh cider.

Debbie does this event to raise money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. She does not charge for the cider sampling but does have a pity jar for anyone wishing to make a donation to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

She will be working at the cider press all day.
