An annual event anticipated by many people in Surface Creek Valley and beyond is scheduled to take place this year on Saturday, Nov. 3.
The annual Fritchman's Orchard end-of-season sale of premium fruit leftover from the past season will begin at 9 a.m. and run until 3 p.m. if supplies don't run out before then.
"As always, there will be cookies and coffee for everyone who comes by," said Darlene Fritchman. Featured at the event will be several varieties of locally-grown apples from the Fritchman's own orchards.
The event has been happening at the Fritchman store on Highway 65 just north of Eckert for 10 or 12 years, Darlene added.
Every year, Fritchman's holds the sale as a benefit for a local cause or community organization. There is hardly a worthwhile effort in the valley that hasn't benefitted from the sale over the years.
This year, one of the valley's most involved and service organizations, the Surface Creek Valley Lions Club with its many community activities and projects, will benefit from the proceeds of the sale. Lions will be on hand this Saturday for the event.blog comments powered by Disqus
