The Chardon Kiwanis is pleased to see the arrival of maple season in Northeast Ohio. There is no better time in Geauga County than maple season because of the wonderful events involving a sweet local product we have all become familiar with. The Kiwanis Club of Chardon is pleased to be part of this tradition.
In the coming weeks, for yet another year, the Kiwanis Club of Chardon will gather at the kitchen of the Pilgrim Christian Church to bottle some of the sweet stuff produced at local sugarhouses, which is already flowing at some local sugarhouses. The syrup that will be bottled will be sold at the Heritage House on the square this spring.
The Heritage house on the square will be open starting March 12th and each following Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. until the festival. In addition, during the festival, which is coming April 27th – 30th, maple sales will occur in the Heritage House and festival tent. Those that stop by can expect to find all the maple syrup, maple barbeque and mustard, maple candy, maple spread, maple sugar, and various other sweets. The sweetest maple product, maple sugar cotton candy, will be returning for yet another year.
As in previous years, maple sales will be the primary fundraiser of the Chardon Kiwanis to support the scholarships that it awards to Chardon area students and various other projects that it sponsors each year.
“Being able to enjoy something sweet while helping area youth pursue their further education is a great way to celebrate our great maple tradition,” said Paul Grae Chairperson of maple sales for 2017. “Please come out to the Heritage House to purchase something special and support our area students.”
In addition, to Kiwanis maple sales, the Stir Booth will be open every Sunday for visitors to enjoy prior to the festival from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. If you would like to learn more about the activities of Kiwanis, please visit the website at Kiwanis Club of Chardon or call the Chardon club at 440-537-7316.
