2015 Apple Palooza Summary and Winners

We’ve had amazing weather this entire 2015 apple season … except for Apple Palooza.  Of course!  There was a wet mist happening most of the morning and into the afternoon.  It was definitely not perfect weather for an event at the apple orchard.  That being said – you folks still made it a great day!

We had 16 pies entered in the pie contest this year.  Everyone did a fabulous job – the pies were delicious! (I may have tried quite a few …)

Carolyn Brown was the ecstatic winner of this years pie contest!  She’s entered every year and has taken 2nd or 3rd every year … this was her year!  I was happy to award her the golden apple, a certificate for a FREE pie every month for a year from Monty’s Blue Plate Diner, a gift certificate to the Lapacek’s Orchard, and a copy of

First Prize Pies: Shoo-Fly, Candy Apple, and Other Deliciously Inventive Pies for Every Week of the Year (and More)!

And 3rd place with a bronze apple and a gift certificate went to Mary Severson!

Most Creative Pie went to Emily Hefko!

Thank you to everyone who brought a pie and everyone who stopped to buy slices.  We raised over $140 for the Poynette PAD Parent Club in pie slice sales!

Along with the pie contest we also held a ‘Carved Pumpkin Contest’.  We had four gorgeous pumpkins brought and put on display!

The first prize pumpkin was by Maizie Waerzeggers!  She received a 1 X Brass and Walnut Pro Pumpkin Carving Tool Kit and a copy of Extreme Pumpkin Carving, Second Edition Revised and Expanded: 20 Amazing Designs from Frightful to Fabulous

 

Thanks once again to everyone for making this rainy day a fabulous and fun day at the orchard!
