Apple butter festival slated Sunday

The fifth annual Ned Mosher Apple Butter Festival will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, at the log cabin at McVay Elementary School, 270 S. Hempstead Road.

The festival will feature apple butter- and apple cider-making demonstrations and tastings, games and crafts for children and tours of the cabin, which was moved to the school's grounds by the Westerville Lions Club 30 years ago.

The festival is named in honor of Mosher, a Westerville teacher for 37 years and director of its outdoor education program for 17.

Mosher, who died in 2008, helped facilitate the cabin's move to McVay. He used the cabin to conduct hands-on maple syrup demonstrations for students, a practice he continued as a volunteer after his retirement.
