MONMOUTH – Monmouth Museum and other community organizations will celebrate the apple harvest season Saturday, Sept. 27, with most activities near the center of town, on Route 132.

The day will begin with a public breakfast at 7 a.m. at Monmouth Center Church. Afterward, there will be lawn sales at Center Church and the old Grange hall, a used-book sale put on by the Friends of the Cumston Library and tours of historic Cumston Hall.

At 10 a.m., all AppleFest events will get under way on the museum grounds. Visitors can tour all nine museum buildings free of charge, enjoy apple pie and beverages at the Apple Pie Cafe, build a scarecrow with their children, sign up for door prizes and purchase homemade apple pies. Boy Scouts will sell hamburgers and hot dogs at lunchtime.

Local apple varieties will be on sale, and author John Bunker will be on hand to identify any apple varieties brought in by curious homeowners.

A roast chicken public supper will be held at the Masonic Hall, and the day’s activities will wrap up with a 7:30 p.m. performance of “The Mikado” at the Theater at Monmouth.
