Dear Apple Festival Participant,
On behalf of the entire Apple Festival Committee, I would like to express my sincerest thanks for the tremendous support demonstrated by the community Apple Festival. Through vendor fee’s, and overwhelming public support, we were all able to enjoy a festival that we all can be proud of without sacrificing our ability to continue this wonderful tradition.
The Apple Festival Committee has always been committed to fiscal responsibility. This is evidenced by the fact that we have been able to successfully operate the festival for nearly 40 years, saving for lean years, and giving back to our local community. A couple of examples are the Gazebo and Clock which grace Ely Square. The continuation of this tradition is not possible without your continued support.
There are many ways you can support the Apple Festival. We are asking companies and organizations to become “Apple Backers” of this year‘s festival by donating $500–$1,000, or any amount possible to support this outstanding community event. “Apple Backers” donating $500.00 or more will receive 6 tickets to this years Century Club Reception. Individuals can support the Apple Festival by becoming members of the “Century Club”. You become a member by donating a minimum of $100.00 to support this year‘s festival. All members receive two tickets to the annual Century Club Reception to be held this year at the Elyria Country Club on Friday, September 10, 2021. You can take pride in knowing that your help has contributed to the joy of so many.
Please support the 2021 Apple Festival by filling out the enclosed membership registration form and sending it with your check to the address indicated. If you would like to join us at the membership reception, please indicate accordingly on the registration form.
President, Elyria Apple Festival
