FREE FALL CRAFT EVENT AT LITTLE WHITE SCHOOL MUSEUM

The Little White School Museum in Oswego will host their annual Apple Head Carving Make & Take Activity on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 4-5, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. The museum is located at 72 Polk Street (Polk at Jackson) in Oswego, just a block east of U.S. Route 34 (Madison Street), and two blocks from Oswego’s historic downtown business district. Join museum board member Stephanie Just and volunteers Mary Therriault and Darlene Stekl as they help participants create free family fun with a yummy and valuable apple by carving their own apple heads complete with eyes, noses and mouths. This traditional folk art is a great fall decoration and can be used as a "spooky" addition to your Halloween fun. Since the Oswego area was settled, apples have been cultivated, harvested, baked, canned, dried, and pressed, both for home use and for market. A popular 19th Century variety of the fruit, the Minkler Apple, was developed in Oswego Township by the pioneer Minkler family, namesakes of today’s Minkler Road. In addition, a variety of fun apple facts and history will be available to participants. Children must attend with an adult. Families are invited to stop in any time during both days' hours to create their take-home treasures and to visit the community museum. Regular museum hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. For more information, call the museum at 630-554-2999 or send an e-mail to info@littlewhiteschoolmuseum.org.
