The Chardon Kiwanis is delighted 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 connoisseur of. The Kiwanis Club of Chardon is pleased to be part of this local tradition.
In the coming weeks, for yet another year, the maple producers will be gathering to bottle lots of the sweet stuff produced at local farm sugarhouses. Then maple syrup that will be bottled locally will be sold at the Heritage House on the Chardon Square by the Chardon Kiwanis.
The Heritage House opened starting with Tapping Sunday which was held on March 6. It will be open each following Sunday from 11 AM to 3:30 PM. In addition, Maple sales will occur during the annual Easter Egg Hunt to be held on 4/16. Also, during the Maple Festival, which is April 21st through the 24th.
Those that stop by can expect to find Maple Cotton Candy, Maple Syrup, famous Maple Cream and Sugar. As in previous years, all profits from Kiwanis sales scholarships to graduating senior students planning class to attend college or trade school and as well, various other community projects throughout the 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 Jim Rayl, Chairperson of Maple Sales for 2022. “I encourage you to come out to the Heritage House to purchase something special and support our area students.”
