Rain Doesn’t Stop Apple Day

The Mary Baldwin College community can’t always experience a
blue-sky Apple Day. Even though one of the most cherished traditions at MBC was
held on a drizzling October 2, that didn’t stop busloads of students from traveling
to Woodbine Farm near Strasburg to glean 3,870 pounds of apples for Washington
DC-area food banks. Another undaunted group of students harvested the remaining
vegetables from the community garden on Prospect Street and donated them to
Valley Mission. “Not bad for a dreary, rainy Apple Day,” said Amber Keen, director
of student development and support. Dining Services hosted its traditional apple-
laden brunch and students organized the annual Apple Day carnival — moved
this year inside the Student Activities Center. “This is a fun way to unite the school,”
sophomore Kathryn Laflin told The News Virginian’s Bob Stuart, “and it
brings us to the community.”
