Apple Dumpling Assembly

It is that time of the year again and we are in full swing making the yummy apple dumplings for Kendallville's Apple Festival. Assembly of 7,000+ apple dumplings is scheduled for this coming Sunday, September 20th at Crosspointe Church on Drake Road in Kendallville. We have two shifts available. Noon to 3p.m. and 3p.m. to 7p.m. We are only assembling the dumplings on one day this year. With that being said we need everyone to lend their hands and help. Men, women, and children are needed to help. We ask that civic groups, youth groups, sport groups, Sunday school classes, businesses etc. come and give your time to help us with this step in the Apple Dumpling process.

Please contact Deanna at 260-349-8158 or drodenbeck@mediacombb.net to let her know who and how many are planning to help. This will assist with the planning of the day.
