Fun at the core of upcoming apple day

September 8, 2013 by  

The Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities (SPLIA) will be hosting an apple picking event at the Sherwood Jayne Farm in a few weeks. Attendees will be able to participate in sheep shearing, face painting, hay rides, and, of course, apple picking. There will also be old-fashioned games for kids to learn to play. Guests will be treated to freshly-pressed apple cider, as well as performances of traditional music.

SPLIA was founded in 1948 to preserve historical landmarks during the housing development area following World War II. Initially, it created house museums, like the Sherwood-Jayne House, to showcase what life was like during older periods in Long Island’s history. Currently, the organization hosts events and creates publications with the goal of raising awareness about historical sites in the Long Island area. The hope is that people will continue to appreciate the past and support the preservation of sites and artifacts.

Organizers for this event may turn to printing companies to help them advertise for it. Flyers and posters are a great way to raise awareness. Distributing them in areas like Commack or Huntington might draw more attendees in than would otherwise come. SPLIA members may also work with brochure or catalog printing companies to make sure that there is informational material available at the event.

The event runs from 11:00 am to 4:30 pm on September 29. There is a $7 attendance fee for adults, and a $5 fee for seniors and children between the ages of 2 and 12.
