Another Fun Apple Day In Downtown Greenville

It was an actual fall day Saturday in downtown Greenville . . . crisp and chilly for the 24th annual Apple Day.

A nice crowd attended the event to participate in the many activities.

The apple dessert contest had nine entries with Miss Bond County Fair Kayley Woker, Junior Miss Brianna Ulmer, Chamber of Commerce Director April Crew-Kelly and her son, Aiden, serving as judges.
