Ruthven Apple Festival – Cheque Presentation

We held our annual Ruthven Apple Festival cheque presentation on December 13th at Colasanti’s. On behalf of the steering committee and her late husband Ron Hicks, who was so instrumental in starting the festival 38 years ago, Laverne Hicks and daughter Shannon presented a cheque in the amount of $75,000 from the 2017 Ruthven Apple Festival to Community Living Essex County!!

A big thanks to all of our supporters including corporate sponsors, local farmers who donated produce for resale at our Farmers Market, the countless volunteers, CLEC staff, people who receive supports, community groups, local media, the Kingsville OPP and our friends at Colasantis Tropical Gardens for making 2017 the best year ever.
