For thirty years the apple annies have been ambassadors of la crescent and apple fest... now they are looking to the community to give back... right now we are joined by chandra cox from la crescent's apple annies... the apple annie's have given back to the tri state community for more than 30 years.
Acting as the ambassadors of song and goodwill for the city of la crescent and applefest, the annie's go out into the community, to nursing homes, schools, events, celebrations and wherever asked to share the joy of music and brighten the lives of others.
The annie's operate on donations and are only able to go out and sing thru the generosity of others.
While our women work tirelessly to share joy and music, the loss of the tarp is a huge setback as without it, the float, and our music cannot travel.
The benefit on the 21st is to replace the tarp ( more than 30 years old..... we have been good stewards!) and repair some of the equipment that has been damaged as well.
